    Hello again Mate

    The pattern that you show, is actually in Wayne Techet's book.

    Puma produced fine quality etch blades.

    It is a standard inscription from the factory, and "Panzer Regt 4" and "Schweinfurt" would have been added by the owner, before taking delivery. "Schweinfurt is an industrial city which will be remembered for it's continuous production of ball bearings despite heavy allied bombing

    Back to the blade.................... I have concerns over the quality, especially where the letters and motif touch the sides (high lighted in red) Each of the curved lines around the open-winged eagle, at the point end, and the helmet at the ricasso should be clear, unbroken, and without distortion

    I'll leave you to be the judge
