As William says we Like to see it outside in natural light that gives us the best impression of this dagger. Also we want to see the dagger in the scabbard so we can see that it belongs together or not.( with the scabbard ring on the right side ). This scabbard is anodised thats a good thing that shows us its an early one just like the dagger.

I've added a few photos of the dagger taken outdoors as suggested by William, Larry and Rafael.
Sorry guys I didn't realise outside photos would be better.
In my opinion it looks like a nice and original Herder SS dagger.
The new pictures make it look 10 times better.
an early dagger in good condition.
Once again thank you everybody.
