    Good Morning,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Wow! Great gift! In fantastic condition. Glenn is correct, a DLV dagger. The forum frowns upon appraising items but now that you know what it is a quick Google search should help you.

    Others I'm sure will be around to confirm its authenticity.

    That is a very nice DLV/NSFK glider pilots dagger, looks to be a "crackle finish" Helbig, the handle and scabbard are painted rather then the usual leather, and helbig is the only producer of that variety, its hard to tell from the pics, would need it in hand to know for sure, but anyway it has some decent value esp because the condition of the blade looks perfect, here is a link to one like yours for sale, just remember dealers usually mark items up 25+%, hopefully you keep it in your family, a great gift!!!!!!

    Hey Mark

    Value from a Grandfather historical position? Priceless. It is a harder to find maker with great cross grain in blade. These are good to hang onto. I don't collect for investment purposes but I do look for quality....this looks very nice to me. As time goes by and you can pass this down to family if they do want to sell as the anniversary of WWII comes upon us the values will continue to go up. Nothing of course is a guarantee but the fact interest rates suck this will most likely yield more ROI than a 401K or the stock market Also...Welcome the the best Collectors Forum in the World with the best folks!

    No real historical value for our family. My grandpa served in Korea, not WWII. He is a collector of many things, mostly stamps, and this was one of the things he sent me.

    Thanks for all the replies, I really appreciate it!
