It's not Luftwaffe, but a DLV dagger.
Yes thanks for the clarification. I believe it was a civilian org forerunner of Luftwaffe

nice dagger awful background.
Look at the throat to see where it served, does it have the Flying man marking of the NSFK or the DLV wings?
This Gebr.Heller would be a sought after knife if its condition would be a bit better.
The grip leather is worn and it misses its hanger and bufferpad.
The blade has been polished.
So coming to its value....its not a collectable knife in the sense of a high quality collectable.
Its more like a display of a WW2 knife, most likely the knife has been abused by the Vets son....so what price makes you happy?
Tops 400-450 dollars i guess.
Also to answer your question: Yes its an Original
Here the pics of the throat stamps to determine if its a NSFK or a DLV knife
