Hi Marc..Looks great even better now .
These can range in pricing from $300 to near $1400 ..depending upon who is selling it. Mac66 or Gerrit could give a better thoughts on overall value..but Im leaning on a $1000 value.
The motto and the blade condition are the most important..I have seen grey blades being in the $700 range with faint mottos. Your example appears the blade has been cleaned..but the motto is still quite striking .
You have done well ! Wait for Mac and Ger to chime in also..Im sure they would agree also.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Notice that there is no gaps between the diamond & grip recess, the diamond fits perfectly inside the griplate diamond recess thus making it harder to have any wiggle movement, i have noticed this many times before & that is why some diamonds do not move or have very little movement, blade tip looks a little worn but hey its a knife that was used by the Hj kid so do not worry about it, got to be worth at least 450 - 500 euros max in this very nice condition with a clear motto !!, some people/dealers may ask for more but the market is soft at the moment.
Regards Mac 66.
I guess I did allright then with 480 euros "all in" .
Thanks guys, I´m very pleased with it myself.
