Please post some better pics of it,
Hi Sepp welcome to the forum...I am hoping these are not the only photos you may be able to provide to us. As of right now without clearer photos especially in the areas of the Whole motto and close ups of the front of the grip including both emblems,, the back of the grip,, the tang nut, crossguard accent grooves,, and RZM number...without these extra photos..the dagger is a repro. Looking forward to better pics. Regards Larry

Welcome Sepp! This one concerns me a bit but see what better pictures yield. Also get some more folks weighing in.

My 2 cents - the font for the makers mark is incorrect from what I know. That would indicate to me the blade is not original, regardless of whether or not the rest is.
The problem is that the maker of that book has posted over 70 Motto's in his book which a few are not even correct for the makers they supposed to belong to.
Just look at that Motto and look where its place on the blade, look for the high ridge...im not too font of that one either.
In this way the autor asked for pics in the collecting community and did not had all daggers in hand, therefore mistakes are easily made.
Its like the papers...dont believe all thats been printed....make sure you have more then one "reference book" and compare and study.
Thats the only way to collect now a days...
Is this the grip made out of plastic?
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

The seller hasn't sent me any other images, so the communication was closed.
Thanks for your replies!
