World War Two Italian Fascist M1937 MVSN Officers Dagger

World War Two Italian Fascist M1937 MVSN/PNF Officers Dagger.  These daggers were worn by officers of both the MVSN (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale AKA the Blackshirts) and the PNF (Partito Nazionale Fascista), This was the first of the two types of chained hangers for this model of dagger, in 1939 the M chain would be replaced with leather hangers. This dagger is in excellent condition, the eagle head bakelite grip plates are without chips or scratches, and the scabbard is with almost all of its original paint.  The fitting on the grip clearly show the fasces (bundling wooden rods and a single-bladed axe with leather straps) which represented punishment in ancient Rome.  The nickel plated blade is in excellent condition as well with very little spots as can be seen in the pics.  The chain link hanger is with the iconic Roman eagle and the SPQR (Senātus Populusque Rōmānus in Latin, the Senate and People of Rome in English).
