Default Böker SS dagger

Hello gents,
I've found this dagger, could you tell me if you see any red flags?
I have a lack of knowledge in Böker daggers, never had one in my hands.
Thank you.

At first glance this Cadillac seems to be a OK example.

As stated not good - one of the more obvious give aways from the photos is the difference in the etch.

That thing will fool a lot of collectors with disastrous results.

They are getting better.
But for those who know where to look for at a Böker it is an easy no go.
To many give aways.
Wrong etching, wrong gripwood and wrong gripeagle.
