I have not seen these 1917 faked as much (or as good) as the 1918 brass kuckle models. Nice piece!

There is also a rarer earlier version with an extra pyramid on the top of the guard.

One thing to keep in mind, is that these are collectibles and not commodities. There is no "set" price, but value is on a sliding continuum.

There is also a version like yours with "flanges" instead of the pyramids.

sometime I am going to smack a pumpkin with one of these just to see what they would do...

Nice find and a great price. Here is a picture of my two fighting knives and one is like yours and the other is the flange type that Jerry mentioned.
