This is model Nr. 2651 H H (Hirsch Horn) 20cm blade as listed in the 1920's Friedr. Herder Abr. Sohn catalog in my collection. Note that the sheath is different from the one pictured. I have no information on the years of manufacture.

Gary this trademark was registered in 1895, i think your pretty spot on dating it mid 20ths.

Best

Here is Nr. 2651 listed in a 1930's catalog (Dutch) and sheath is similar to the example pictured. This company ceased trading in the 1990's (J. Anthony Carter). The sheaths and quality of the product may be the clue as to years of production.
