new to the forums, I inherited a collection of various WWII German daggers. I am in the process of "completing" them w/ their "accessories".
I see many portepee available for purchase. is it best to get obviously worn or get "un-issued" portepee for my display on these daggers?
thank you

With out seeing the daggers I would get something to match
condition!

Mint dagger gets mint knot!

Worn one gets something with wear!

Welcome to forum!

Please share your pics of daggers!

I would also add Weitze Militaria. This German dealer has a great inventory and the rare and hard to locate items.
