Don't know what happened to the text on my post!. I must be out of practice 😆
Hi Blondi..I dont think you got burned..and the possibility greatly exists that producers did outsource for hardware.
Im going to go out on a limb here...first..You have a not too commonly seen Luft producer. So you are already on a good start. .
The Pommel and Crossguard resemble the details of FW Holler. Yet the fittings and condition including the original airplane grey are consistent with each other.
If any one wants to add their thoughts on this..the truth be found One way or another..you will get the right info on this 2nd Model Luftwaffe.
The scabbard appears to be the Generic no maker type..yet it is difficult to discern any details on the scabbard bands to identify a producer.
IMO I think you got a winner..and period authentic. Other thoughts and opinions welcome to support or correct my findings .
I edited your text Andy..and moved it above your images
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

That's certainly puts my mind at rest that I haven't been sold a pup 😊. Thanks for the info, every day's a school day 👍
