This letter opener is remarkably similar to one posted by scottvez:
It is almost 11 inches long. Engraved on the front of the blade is a monument with a cross on top and lions at the base, with the initials LG. On the back are the dates 1914 and 1918. On the front near where the blade connects to the handle (not visible in the photo) are initials that looked like IMT to me, but are probably JMT as shown more clearly in scottvez's item.
A few relatives served in the US military during WWI, and I suspect one of them picked this up somewhere.
Any idea of what the LG on the front refers to?
