Hi Makisraf,, I dont see a problem with this dagger but your flash tends to wash out a few points of interest. Try not to use direct flash when shooting pics,, but an overcast day outside..or a well lit room with indirect lighting. Check out this link on another Kolping Army which is similar to your pick up. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/dagger...sdolch-194285/
Also includd below is a link to our Heer Reference.

Looks all original, but the makers mark should face the back so just turn the blade around and all is good.
Like, H. Kolping is one of the rare markers.
H. Kolping was a smaller company, so they used the generic parts of a dagger.
Looks fine to me!
the hangers and portepee are a nice addition, they are nice originals.
Looks sweet to me can we see the rest of the blade please?
