    Oh, not like these recent photos of mine ............... ? !

    Most period photos are in B&W unless in a war-time publication like 'SIGNAL', or something,
    although I guess coloured grips would appear darker in a black and white photo.

    I don't think I've ever removed the pommel to see, but it's not a Luftwaffe dagger,
    and it's not a period photo !

    They do turn darker with age sometimes, although my Army dagger was made in this colour.
    I think it was possible to 'order' the shade you desired - white or orange.

    White turns yellow as in your first photo on the left. It depends on the grip materials used,
    and exposure to the elements, smoke, etc. Usually celluloid grips change
    quite drastically....
