    Smile Luftwaffe Sword - excellent condition

    Hi again,

    2nd thread now...

    This sword is offered from a dealer. I find the condition excellent, almost too good to be true.
    Please give me your thoughts. It has been in the same family since the late 50s.

    I do not specialize in Luft daggers and swords but, I don't see any red flags in either of the items that you have posted. Condition is not always a sign of authenticity.

    I don't either, but I am not an expert. The condition is better than most I have seen. Does anyone see anything on the sword that is "fake warning"?

    I would also like to add that the quality of Tiger made pieces is always desireable.

    I'm no expert either, but the Tiger logo looks like a good example of the second type of six that they used for their daggers. I like it.

    Hi Big Ned,
    I see u live in England. What would this sword cost appr. in England? My guess for Germany (after looking in the German shops) would be 1500 euro. What do u think?

    Same question for u Ralph, What do u think about the price? I reckon the prices in Canada are lower than Germany / Europe.

    Hi Chris,
    The sword you show is an original piece with aluminum fittings. This is the later type of this model. The earlier types have nickel-silver fittings and are considered more desirable by most collectors. I think 1500 euro is too much for an aluminum piece. Maybe some dealers ask these kind of prices but if you are patient you can buy a nickel silver example in excellent shape from another collector for less money.

    Thanks Danny.
    I have offered 1100 euro (1450 USD). I don't think that's too much for this piece. Don't u agree? I live in Europe, just so u know.
