    First of all, welcome to the forum mate! :-)

    What do you want to know? If it is genuine? Is this dagger in your possession?

    Well, it is an early M33 SS dagger Robert Klaas. (Kissing Cranes logo)
    It does seems to have an early anodized scabbard.
    Lower crossguard has the Roman numeric stamping which stands for distributioncentre Munich.
    Possible that the blade is shortened...? What's the length of the blade?

    Out of that, it is accually very difficult to give a good opinion because of the very bad pictures.
    Ask for much better detailed pictures on a light background, best in daylight. So, taken without flash.
    And for sure you gonna need pictures of the frontside of the grip and all it's fittings.

    Can we see the front of the grip?...I agree with Krisse..the flash dies semi to give csime false impressions ..another trick of the light is that it makes the guards look plated.

    As Larry said...the guard looks Plated-which is a "stop in your tracks" red flag. Note how shiny it looks compared to the illustrated one in the book. If you could take some photos in a natural light setting, that would be a great help!

    I think that pictures in clear daylight will show nickle crossguards. I'm sure it caused by the light. It just are terrible pictures.

    The distribution number on the lower guard would seem to indicate this, but with These photos, it's almost impossible to say. It's possible, also, that someone over polished the nickel and made it shine to match the sheath fittings. It's hard to say. It has Potential, but until better photos are obtained, it'll have to stay as "potential"!
