    Default WW1/WW2 ?? Lion Head sword letter opener

    Hey guys, came across this, but know very little about it. My first guess was pre WW2 German souvenir or novelty item. It shows plenty of age and wear and use!!! Even perhaps as a hammer at one time, lol!! Blade is stamped twice, one saying Germany, the second I can't make out. I have tried finding info, but no real luck! Looking for some help, thanks in advance!

    I believe these are post war. They do not have the detail of the earlier ones.
    Here are a few photos of my example.

    I know that we REALLY don't put values in things here, but this is so obscure I'm just curious???

    These were sold as souvenirs and can be found with
    various city names on the blades.

    Do a search on ebay for "miniature German sword"
    You will find several.
