From the images it appears to be period from one of the more commonly seen makers. Made to be used with the folding shovel, it's post 1943 with this particular example showing multiple manufacturing errors that were corrected. A little bit unusual but still serviceable and not something that would affect originality. FP

Henrik, not in hand the three extra holes in the back suggest that the worker possibly had an alignment problem and had to make adjustments. Fred
