What is this strange dagger/scabbard?
Pardon my ignorance if it's a well known item or absolute junk. It popped up on feeBay a while back, and just resurfaced today. Strange scabbard, combination SA and 98k? The paint looks like somebody rattle canned it maybe? The inscription is not SA, I take it it's not the Rohm inscription they ground off, or the inscription of an SS dagger.

I think its suppose to be a npea dagger. Its just a bad one.
Yes, quite right. Interesting, never seen one, lots of uncommon daggers I guess. The Teno someone posted on the site yesterday I saw a nice one posted on a dealers site for $10k, and the NPEA $3600, are these prices correct?
I paid a bit more for my NPEA 2 years ago
They are not only rare but highly copied/faked.
Teno's are very expensive either originals go from 6K-9K, depending state and hangers.
The fakers have reached a skilled level that is quite frightning.
If the Teno has no proved provenance i would pass these days.
