Ok guys, another one. I know this is not a great example but I'm studying these things. This one is not serialized, not dated and with no inspection stamps. The only mark I can find is WKC. So what is the deal with this? Is this a commercial or Police example?
Thanks as always for your sharing of knowledge.

Behoerden Modell S84/98, non WaA proofed, for some NS or Security organisation, WKC production, question is the press button, as dont looks correct there. Other question is the blade sharpened? and the scabbard wout marking? b.r.Andy

All I can say Andy is it came from the Vet's family with a stash of other stuff I would be amazed if it's messed with. Unsharpened no scabbard marking I can see but I'm gonna break the frog if I pull harder.

Better dont remove the frog, when it should be damaged, oiling of metall parts could help, unfortunally the blade was unproperly cleaned as it removed week blueing, You could proof to turn right the press button, prior the locking nut is fully screwed in. b.r.Andy

From the images with uncertain lighting, a later, but probably not from the latest production examples. As Andy stated some very light oiling might help, and the turned out press stud button could very easily be postwar - not that I'm saying that anyone did anything like that recently.
