    Appears someone had painted the fittings white..as it gave the impression of the fittings being plated..which made no sense on an early Nickel Luftwaffe sword.

    Examining closer..at the upper scabbard fitting..the white paint left..which in the recesses of the crossguard feathering left me to believe..the white paint was Nickel..and the dark beneath being Pot Metal.

    Why someone thought that painting it white would make it look nicer..or the inexperienced thought was the real nickel was absolutely dull.

    Larry i have seen this before with WKC, its the parts remaining of the original silver coating. At most of the swords this coating is polished and gone, this one survived the brasso treatment.

    Not contradicting your thoughts...or is the photos playing tricks on my eyes seen in the photo below. Looks like white paint, that someone tried to remove leaving some.
