    Both the eagle and the roundel look to have been either replaced or messed with-most likely post-war. The grip nut, too, looks to have substantial damage from much tinkering with it. At best, I'm thinking that this is looking like either an attempted restoration of a stripped and damaged piece, or else a parts dagger outright. In any case, the value would not be all that much and it's collectability seriously compromised.

    Wagriff has put it in a nut shell really, my opinion is that this isn't the grip that was original to the dagger also,

    Your right Ronnie as also what Wagriff said,,not only the grip,, but the crossguards and the 2 scabbard fittings,, the upper being a toned yellow and the lower fitting being patined. The hanger was just added also. Oddly the reverese blade looks half decent which might show some prominent graining,, but the obverse has been overly buffed to where it wiped out some of the lettering. Why someone would do this is beyond me. Not a good investment piece which also is missing the SS distribution mark on the reverse guard.

    Actually, the district mark is there, only on the wrong side. The guard has been installed reversed. I am able to see the roman numeral "I".
    I agree with William and Ronnie's assessment, not one I would spend very much on.

    only put on the wrong way LOL, and its a RZM, so its not the Original one that should belong to an early SS dagger

    agree with the rest,partsdagger, grip fits badly to the crossguards, better look for something else
