Default Danish (i think) USM8A1 scabbard made in W.Germany

Hello, I have a, basically, NOS M8A1 scabbard and I am thinking I had found info at one time that it is actually the Danish version?? Are there any bayo experts here that can verify, or correct me? From what I think I remember, the hooks kind of give it away...

Also, would like to know what a proper value is on this scabbard. I would like to sell it and get a proper USGI Korea ('53) version.

The hooks are typical for use with British and Danish style web gear. I would expect to see some Danish makings : HMAK, HTK, FKF on the web. Nice condition. Is that metal stamped "Made in Germany"?? Can't see on the photo. I have 10-15 of the Dane bayonets but would have to dig them out to check my marks.
Value?

Yes, it is stamped MADE IN GERMANY, no markings on the web that I can remember.
