I admit that I don't know much about these. But if it is legit - it is quite an early pattern. Others on here will be able to provide you with much more information.
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
I'll take a deep breath and say that it appears to be a nice 2nd pattern F-S knife with correct 2nd pattern scabbard. Manufactured most likely between April 1941 - early 1943......
This site should give most of what you are looking for.
The Second Pattern Variation
P.S. I have moved it to the correct section.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
A well worn but original broad arrow b2 version, nice.
Whatever its just an opinion.
Super looking 2nd Pattern. Congrats to you on a fine acquisition for your first F-S.
Betchya can’t stop at one!
