    Heres a sword that dosent pop up often - a gilt colored Justice Official(Justizbeamte) sword - originals are produced with a aluminum base and gilt coating - there have been reproductions of this sword but it was produced in a solid brass grip and is very heavy.The maker on the one pictured is "Eickhorn"- note that on both sides of the crossguard is the identical image of a eagle.

    Thanks for the comments - there are a number of Heer swords but other branches stuck to one model i.e Kriegsmarine,Luftwaffe,prison & Justice officials not to forget the SS to name a few.As the Prison/Justice officials were a relatively small group compared to the other branches they are harder to find & demand a higher price.
