That's a great untouched sword with a great patina. The blade is in superb condition. I love it!
Thank you Gents for the kind words
The good early ones are getting harder to get every year.....
Wow Gerrit really super example there.
Just to contribute a bit for the new guys here.
-Notice how the pommel swas is raised up slightly from the rest of the pommel? Nice feature in these early ones. As time went on the swas's became flatter and the radii of the pommel flattened.
- Never polish up your early "swas's between the legs" of the swas is only an ultra thing silver wash that once gone never can be replaced. Many early swords have been cleaned. This one is pristine!
I congratulate you on your acquisition! well done.
I really need to get one of these, that is the perfect look IMO, Lakeside just had one like this, an early Eickhorn with unit markings, of course it sold in a matter of hours. Great addition to your already amazing collection!
Very Very nice sword Gerrit, ive got one very similar. IMO the nicest sword of the Third Reich and still reasonably priced!
Think your wrong about the Alu not having the pattern on the pommel though.
How Long is the blade?
