Manufactured or distributed by a Beckman firm in Kiel, Germany. This very interesting dagger recently surfaced in Denmark and is “tailor made” for the German edged weapon collector who likes/loves the research aspect of collecting. I personally have never seen this dress dagger or even a photo or sketch of this model. Both the center front and rear crossguards are stamped, “Beckman, Kiel”. Very ornate pommel, grip and scabbard (serious train door dent on lower scabbard). Very interesting, unattributed dagger worth serious research to solve the mystery of what this piece represented and when produced. EX-.
