Default Badik Bugis in silver mounts for sale

For sale is a nice Badik Bugis in silver mounts, I think that it is from the 1930s, I have two similar badiks which are dated, see the pictures.
This Badik coming from a German collector who asked me if I can help to sell items from his collection.
The badik has a blade from 5,3 cm which is in a clean but unpolished and not etched condition but will show after an etch a nice lamination. The wooden handle shows a beautiful grain and is glossy patinated. The handle is adorned with a silver ferrule which show wear and age. Scabbard is wood covered with silver sheet which is fine embossed. There is a damage from wear at tip of the scabbard. The dagger is 24 cm long without and 27 cm with scabbard. The weight is 171 gram.
Asking price is EUR 300 or $348 shipped worldwide.
