    Very nice Ger!
    I had the opportunity to examine one of these in person a few years ago. Ivory handle and all.
    Congrats on a great pick-up!

    Hello,

    a very attractive saber of the german imperial navy as used by officers and upper rank NCO's
    These private purchase sabers are usually of very high quality with ivory grips and sometimes damascus blades
    One thing to tell about this example is that the "portepee" is not corresponding to the period, as it seems to be one of WW2 kriegsmarine, made of synthetic material called "celleon"

    The correct "portepee" is supposed to be made of silver plated copper wire with intertwined red and black threads

    I know its not an imperial portepee , but after 1918 a lot of these sabers stayed in action, only changing the portepee into a standard one.

    This portepee has been on this sword for ages, it shows its wear on the right spots.
    there are lots of period mid 20s pics to prove it.
    Forgot tis one picture:
