    As was mentioned in your original thread, the ferrule and chain are from two totally different daggers other than the Heer pattern so before going any further you have to consider this a "parts dagger".

    It was not unusual in the burgeoning souvenir market just after the war for "whole" items to be made up from unused parts stock to sell to the occupying troops.
    Sometimes they ended up with all the correct parts but often not. Either because the people doing it didn't know or didn't care but just as likely because the potential purchasers didn't know either!

    This certainly doesn't make it worthless. Just worth less. There is always a demand for original parts to restore damaged items. That said I can't say for sure from these pics whether the parts themselves are all original although we have some real experts here who probably could. Stand by for more input!

    Regards

    Thanks Mark! I get that its a parts dagger if its ok, but im a bit uncertain on this one.
    The handle just seems so "cheap" and bad quality.
