    Hi Jonathan..dagger is all original..but a combination of period fittings.

    Early : .... are the scabbard and first type hanger. The grip also including nickel grip eagle.

    Late : ..... Is the late period blade and crossguards. The RZM M7/36 belongs to EF Horster..a prominent producer.

    Another observation is the presence of a buffer pad beneath the lower guard..which never happened with these daggers except only with NPEA Student daggers.

    E F Horster did not piece together late period daggers from left over stock parts...which this example has been fitted with mostly early period fittings. I would expect at best an early grip..but this producer was well into their late period production of all fittings.

    The dagger overall is authentic with a mix of early and late. Hard to put a price on this as this forum is not for valuation.
    A early period NSKK will be around $800 ..a late period will be around $500 if in good and consistent condition.

    Regards Larry

    That may answer why you have concerns of the crossguard fit.

    Hi Larry, thank you for your feedback on the dagger, these blades have such an interesting history of manufacturing don't they! So all up this dagger is 100% original period manufacture yes? The buffer pad I and another person had concerns about as well. Ps I like your quote about the size of a collection

    I think you missed the point, the parts are Original, but as Larry stated this dagger did not leave the factory this way.
    Its still only a partsdagger and therefore not very interesting for the collector.
    You better look for one that is consistent in period and material.
