Edinburgh Glasgow Thomas Eerr Ebbutt sgian dubh date?

Postby ASPaulding » Mon Jul 26, 2021 10:26 am

Hello please help me identify the date on this dagger. The hallmark is rubbed off so I'm not positive on the date letter. It looks like the b from 1883. I am curious on why it says "Made in Scotland". I didn't think that mark happened till earlier in the 20th century. I know it has an ebony handle in leather sheath with sterling fittings. The handle and sheath has Glasgow hallmarks I think. With 6.79 carat citrine in pommel. Thank you for all you help.

I'm not sure I'm doing the photos right.

Edinburgh, maybe 1957 or 1968?
