Default Army Dagger Scabbard Question

I have had this dagger for a long time and I just noticed that the scabbard fittings don’t look right. What are these fittings from?
Thanks

Scabbard bands look like Ernst Pack & Sohne product.

Agree, but Pack did sell parts to other companies, who is the maker/producer?

I am thinking the blade may have been changed out in the past. I was told that E. Pack only used this style fitting on their own daggers.

Dagger crossguard is Carl Eickhorn 4. type - also as blade (1936 - 1939.)
But scabbard is IMO replaced with E - pack one.

I agree with Schlange the scabbard has been replaced with a Pack one, as said Pack did sell parts to other companies but looking at the hand work on the bands this scabbard is for a Pack dagger. Eickhorn manufactured their own parts and did not use this type of scabbard, you can also see it is not right by the bottom of the guard overlapping the top scabbard band.
