    I have been doing some searching on the internet for information. I also have seen two on websites that had F.W. Holler Berlin on the oval crest on the back side of the blade. In the center appears to be some type of a scale or something which is also on the two I saw that were being sold for around $8K+.

    I believe anything marked "F.W.Holler Berlin" is a fake. F.W. Holler was located in Solingen. Run away from that dagger in a hurry!

    There is no mention in Tony Carter's book on German Sword & Knife makers of Holler using Berlin in their trademark - only Solingen.

    Default Dagger

    Another give away on the early fakes is that there are two round circular impressions on the rear of the wings of the crossguard where the strikers pushed the guard out of the dye but thats just one of the easy ones.
