The presented object appears to be a modern-period small sword or dagger. The whole dagger is made out of steel and designed in the style of the 12th to 14th centuries. The blade is stamped with a hallmark with a dragon on the letter PF. This piece was made in the second half of the 20th century.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 40 to 80 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
