No waffenamt mark on it:-)
sorry to say but i dont see to many differences between the 2.
What i do know know after taking pics of at least 70 different daggers that the logo's can look very different on the same dagger.
All depending on light and angle.
I can take a picture the way the logo looks completely black and after that take the same picture and it will be completely grey.
I guess a dagger like this most be judged in hand, and its easy to say that its been polished to dead, but ive learned that you cant Judge a dagger by just 1 picture, sometimes its even hard seeing a lot of pics and your still not satisfied
In hand it can look way better or ...even worse.
Thanks guys...i m learning a lot from your answers
Always when a some motifs are etched, remain small irregularities on the edges.
And when someone is going to polish etched blade, such irregularities disappear, and the edges of etched - become soft.
None photos can not hide these fact.
Example intact etching:
Pay attention to the edges:
They are always sharp, there is no soft any transition.
