Default Ivory handle army dagger

Hello fellow collectors, found this recently.
It's a Hörster army dagger with ivory handle, and the crossguard seems to be 4th Höller pattern, am i right?
What could you tell me about this piece, is it a parts dagger?
Thanks.

IMO it is part dagger. Scabbard and blade are Horster product, and crossguard is Holler product.

Horster used this punched eye version of the Pack type 3 / Holler type 4? guard, so the dagger, if the scabbard is correct, IMO is ok.

That’s right Horster used this variation more than Holler IMO

Also that throat with the big hang over on the sides is a desirable Horster variation
