Hi all! I recently saw such a student's dagger. Lots of controversial stuff. What are your thoughts on this dagger?

A few more photos. They are of very poor quality, unfortunately.

Letter and number font on the crossguard is incorrect for the Spandau school. Frog lug is not a Bergsmüller shape. This one has the same ill shaped and wrong blade buffer pad. I’m suspect of the scabbard ball as well.

I’m assuming this dagger is from the same source as the other. I believe them both to be modern reproductions.
