Looks fine to me, nice early one too. If its real then around £550, I paid £500 for mine with a more common maker
Can you confirm what province is etched into the cross guard please?
A very nice original dagger. The vertical hanger is rare, and would add to the value of the dagger. Better photos of the hanger are need though.
I don't like that vertical hanger one bit sorry
Not really a dagger guy, but I know helmet chinstraps, and that leather looks brand new to me.
Rare group mark coming form the eastern part of Germany,, very desirable,, the hanger I agree also.. almost looks like something from a shoe or sandal. Larry

Ostmark. Skipping the bad hanger, $500 is about right,
although there is a lot of verdegris around the insignia
in the grips.........
I like this early dagger, as stated above the hanger is not genuine TR, altho the eagle left the grip on the right side and the insignia has some corrosion it still would do 500-550 euro's in Holland. Overall its a great dagger cheers Ger
