Hi Gene,

IMO the scabbard, peened pommel, and use of ivory on your M1888 naval cadet & midshipman's dagger are all consistent with a production date well before WWII, likely no later than WWI or slightly before (my best guess), and possibly from as early as the turn of the century... A nice example, even with the checking in the ivory...

Cheers,

Chris
