Hello Olivier

The blades are pre 1945 ,as the same brand and make "Sonnal gold"(sonnal extra is from the 1930's) ,can be seen advertized in German magazines of the period (signal ,die wehrmacht ,deutsche illustrierte etc...) such magazine are a good source of infos ,concerning personal items available to the landser ,during wartime.
The matches however ,are both post-war ,ViKtor is right on the first one ,the one with the eagle is from the early 1950's.
Hope this will help you.
Best Regards
