    Untouched C. War of 1812 Silver Mounted American Naval Officer's Dirk. A known form, these delicate dirks have been associated with the Baltimore/ Philadelphia area. 8" overall with tapered double edge blade with median ridge. Blade excellent, just some minor surface rust. Hollow silver hilt with embossed decoration at the pommel and delicate hand cut guard with scalloped edges and engraved decoration. Finely checkered one piece ivory grip with nice mellow patina. Sheet silver scabbard with frog stud also perfect uncleaned condition, with an engraved line around the throat. Because of their fragile construction these dirks rarely surface in this pristine undamaged untouched condition. Exceptional example.
