Wow that one is a beauty, I would love to have one of these to complete my lufty collection, all the ones I have seen are always over 1000US, you may be paying top retail at 1450 but then again the condition is excellent, and that is all that really matters.

The good thing about a piece like this is as time goes on the minty examples become fewer and further between, only increasing its value.

If I buy it you will. But right now these are the only pics I have.
Like others said, condition is everything when collecting edged weapons. In my experience it's always better to pay a little extra for top quality items then to buy a cheap dagger or sword that is in poor condition. Top quality items are more likely to increase in value and are a lot easier to sell. This sword is in great condition so I think you can't go wrong if you can get it for 1100 euro.
For your info. The sword was sold yesterday, together with this dagger
1st model Luftwaffe Dagger - makers mark?
for the amount of appr. 2050 euro. It´s a fact, I saw when the deal took Place. 3 persons fought over them.
That was more than I expected...
Good price, 1100 would be a bargain for this sword. Tiger LW swords are not often found and for sure not in this condition. Maybe one to 100 compared to SMF or Eickhorn.
