The scabbard is from a later period. I would not buy this dagger.

It might be an early scabbard with repainted shell. The fittings are polished, so they do look like plated ones, but screws look to me more "flat", hence there is a chance they are early nickel type, and so is the rest.
The dagger itself looks like an "ordinary" Hammesfahr, so no probs with it.

Little spot looks like a rust. But both fitting are not magnetic.

Not magnetic? Nickel silver then. As I suspected: polished fittings, repainted scabbard shell. If the price is attractive, it would be OK to buy it for a starter.

Dear Gentelmen,

Please, be so kind look on addition picture. Space between cross-guard and handle & Little hole on lower fitting. Is it ok?
