Default Hitler youth knife question??

Hi All:

Have a really nice original Hitler Youth Knife and original metal sheath it came with. Handle with inlaid swastika perfect, blade also original, not ground on. Beautiful piece of history.

Might anyone know a ballpark value on this knife??

Thanks: Lastcast,,,,,Ranger Recon, Class of 67.

I am NOT an expert on the Hitler Jugend knives- but I know there are more reproductions than originals. I mean a TON of repro's. Unless I got the knife from my great uncle Wilhelm who told me about when he joined the HJ at age 12, I would find an expert to look at it.

Good article on them- orginal and repros- http://www.lakesidetrader.com/HJlesson.html

I received the knife from my Father-in-law who got it during the war in the European Theater he was fighting in. It's definitely authentic.

Like any military collectable, value will be driven by exact condition and model- I know enough to know that the HJ knife had several makers, a couple of different versions, and that drives the price. Could be anywhere from about $300 to $900. Congratulations on having a very interesting bit of history there.
