During the denazification the eagle lost his feet too. Lol.
Looks like its been neatly filed off where the feet and swastika were and also for some reason the cross-guard ends. From what I know about army's which isn't a lot it looks like all the parts are correct but wait for the army guys to comment. I would leave this cross-guard on the dagger as it could be the original one and changing it would be changing its history and would be creating a parts dagger even if its with the correct type of cross-guard. It also encourages people to break up daggers and sell for parts if they know people are going to buy them. Good luck and hope its a correct piece this time for you.
Thanks for the input Tomaz.
I have not come across anybody at the moment selling off bits of daggers.
I was thinking that putting on a new crossguard would make it look a little better in my office display. Of course I would keep the original part and when the time comes for it to go it can go with both the original and replaced piece.
All the best
