    This blade is etched with 'mehr sein als scheinen' (to be more than it appears/seems).

    It is similar to a NPEA (youth leader) dagger.

    Was it made for other branches or units of WW2 German origin?

    All information would be gratefully received. Mart.

    HI Marty the answer is No ...these daggers are not unit based and it does represent the NPEA schools.
    That Motto can be seen on all 3 NPEA dagger types.

    Student Dagger - with plain grip no insignia and with frog and scabbard
    Staff Leader - with Grip eagle insignia and with frog and scabbard
    Leaders dagger - with Grip eagle insignia and chained scabbard assembly.

    Can you show us photos on both sides of the blade tang ? ...I would like to confirm a specific marking for this Type 1 blade.

    Regards Larry
