    What has me concerned is there is a small gap between the guard and blade.

    That is not a problem, really, but the sheath looks like it may have been repainted.
    If it hasn't the whole piece is in fabulous condition.............!

    Is there any way I could know if the sheath has been repainted? If it has, whoever did it did a great job.

    Thought I'd add, I don't think this is painted. The woman that sold this to the antique store owner found it in a box along with some old Deutsch Marks after her 91 year old grandmother had died.

    I'm going to use a friend's DSLR camera to get better images soon, but it won't be tomorrow since he'll be in Dachau all day. I don't plan on selling this dagger, but what would it be worth if it's completely original and the scabbard is not painted?
