Just to add my 2p worth: Bob is 100% correct.
Always dissappointing to think you have found something nice and it turns out bad, but at least no money was involved.
These old fakes bring $300.00 to $400.00. If you don't have $45,000.00 to $60,000.00 for an original, they can be acceptable fillers.
I am seeking Golden Party Badge # 77578, Luftwaffe blue summerweight flight pants, used Geschwader Immelmann officer's cuff title.
I agree with Bob too, 100% fake. The eagle wing format is tipical from 60's Spanish repros.
one fugly dagger,,,dump it and use the money towards something real,,

When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
All the original honor (high leader) daggers were made by the Eickhorn firm. All have silver color fittings.
The oakleave decorated scabbard fittings were non removable and were an integral part of the scabbard shell.
There are no good convincing looking replicas currently for sale that I know of, nor were there any in the past.
I have a replica in my 'Foolsgold' collection that I assembled myself.
