    Very nice pickup. Especially for the price.

    Agreed. The etching and maker stamp look very well done
    - too good for a repop, IMO. Nice buy.........!

    As to the sword knot its a Wehrmacht NCO Faustriemen and not for this early officials/court sword.

    Looks great, to me-definitely not repro in make or appearance, that I can see. A Fine little sword and in very nice shape-someone took care of this one. I especially like the Lion on the clam shell. Nice pick up! How can you lose for 50 bucks? And you can always sell the portapee and get some of even the 50 back!
