    I found out that "LBA(S)38" - translates to: Luftwaffe Bekeidungs Amt. - Stuttgart 1938. Therefore it probably goes with a Luftwaffe sword.

    Hi Pablo, Very nice item and you are correct it is a Luftwaffe Portepee, and would belong on a Luftwaffe Bayonet only, (dagger would be silver only) traditionally or should I say according to the textbook Luftwaffe swords were not to be worn with a Portepee and I never saw a period photo of one on a Luft sword, BUT my Luftwaffe sword came to me from a vet with the same exact portapee attached so I left it on

    Thanks Max! I was wondering about the other stamped inscription. I looks like "Lownet" or "Lowie" or "Lower". Is that a manufacturer?

    A small correction is needed here: Luftwaffenbekleidungs Amt Sonneberg NOT Stuttgart.
