This is an original WW1 or WW2 Fighting or "Boot" knife manufactured by Gottlieb Hammasfahr for use by soldiers in the field.  This example features a well-preserved wood handle.  Blade has a uniform grey finish, and is marked both with the Gottlieb Hammasfahr factory information and also a "Crown D" proof mark.  Scabbard has been polished - I don't think this ever had paint on it, judging by the factory affixed leather hanger, which has rust around the leather, but no signs of paint.
