My grandmother was a nurse in World War 1. She lived from 1878-1981. She had this letter opener in her desk that I inherited. All I know is that there is a six number serial # on it which is hard to read. It ends in 438 I think. It has a soldiers head on it and on the actual bullet is a crown. On the long opener part, the word "ARRAS" is written on it. I believe it to be made of brass and it measures about 7" long. It is in beautiful condition. I would love to hear more about where it comes from and and any other history about it. It is a very special piece.
