    Default Unknown sword emblem, Help!

    Sorry for the poor photos gentlemen. I cannot figure out what these represent. I was offered this sword and It is certainly old, I just don't know what it's for. Do any of you recognize the emblems on this sword?

    Mo, Imperial German Army "Prussian" Infantry Officers M1889 Degan (Sword), standard pattern infantry officers sword, the badge on the handle is "Wilhelm II" Royal cypher, the emblem on the folding handguard is the "Prussian" Adler/eagle motif. It looks to have the remains of a knot on the handle. Has it a scabbard ? quite a common sword, in good condition, approx $300 with scabbard, about $150+ without.
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    It is in good condition. I wouldn't say it's excellent but fairly good. It has the scabbard and it is complete. I just might buy it. Thanks a lot for your help!
