Like to hear your opinions on my latest find. I got this one for a peanut-price (100), it came without a scabbard. The missing stamp on the crossguard could mean that it is a nskk dagger (but i could be wrong).
Interresting is the number on the crossguard (could be the id-number of the owner?).
The blade is heavely cleaned as it had some pitting that is still showing. Any opinions are welcome!

the handle and crossguards are real,,the blade is a post-ww 2 manufacture for allied troops so they can get a "souvenir"...usually this blade is found with a plastic handle instead of wood,,,
Hi Eddy, Robert is correct.
thanks for the replies guys,
it is amazing how good this blade looks! i have some other daggers both sa and nskk. even if you take the dagger apart there is a "schmiedemark" showing. also the crossgrain as exact as a original one.

I'll switch the photos in B&A thread.
I think it may be useful for future research of B&A daggers.
Are all B&A Daggers post war?
Most parts are original, but daggers are assembled after the war.
