I have come across this Patriotic German pocket knife and have found very little information regarding its rarity. How much does an item as such go for? Would it be better to continue to obtain the Taschenmesser (Pocket Knife) so the value will increase? I’m assuming that the rarity would be moderate due to it being mass produced hence its popularity; or was it? Could it have been an Officer’s pocket knife? I would like to know more information in regards about the antique. Thank You.
