I won't say I like it, but I do think it's an original piece....or rather pieces!

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

Thank you all for the feedback!
😃 I'm very happy to hear it seems to be authentic!
Thanks for the welcome Larry. I have no scabbard for this piece. Maybe it wasn't fitted
with one before capture?
I have a friend who also has a Hörster without the RAD proofmark mon the blade, just like yours.
I will ask him for some pics, so that we can compare the two.
Ella i have contacted my friend but his RAD that also lacks the RADJ proofmark is a Höller, so pics are of no use.
