    Different Colour Grip Rivets on an Anton Wingen

    What do you think of the grip rivets on this late war Anton Wingen, Jr?

    All other HJ Knives i got have much shinier nickel rivets. So i'm thinking they must be replaced grips or something.

    Regards,

    Fin

    The used metals for the rivets were probably depending how the war draged on...

    Does this one have a non-magnetic zinc hilt as well? Looks like a little blue showing through on the finger-guard. What is the date Fin?

    Regards
