Sorry to say, but that motto does not look original acid-etched.

This is an original early HJ-knife and the scabbards is also a nice early one.

unfortunately the motto has been redone... and in what a horrible way! eek

Best regards,

Sadly this is happening more often these days so best to post pix on the forums before purchase, even some big name dealers are at this crap & also selling fakes for big money.
