You are correct the Tiger TM on that early hj is wrong !!
See some Tiger TMs here: lets see some Tiger! - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums

thanks Mac 66.
well, maybe it is a rare variation ?
The grip looks original to me.
Also the motto is ok IMO.
Why someone put fake maker mark on early blade ?
It could be the earliest Tiger ?
let's wait for more opinions
I owned an early Thin blade by Tiger once
Here is a my former Tiger, this is how it should look like IMO, stamped logo, larger Logo also.
whats also a big red flag is that the small Tiger is etched AND has a different type of Font then the Ges.Geschutz. which makes it questionable for me.
Compare it to this one, and you see that the appeareance of the one i show fits, the little one is a bit of a mismatch.
