    Default Army Dress Sword

    My father brought several items back from the war that I intend on selling. He finished the war as commander of the 701st Tank Battalion.

    I have posted a couple of threads on this site about an M38 and M40 helmet and really appreciate the responses.

    The pictures are of what I believe is an army dress sword, lion's head, made by Paul Weyersberg. I am of course biased, but the sword looks pristine.

    I would appreciate any information you guys might have on this. German war relics is not exactly my field of expertise.

    That is a stunning sword, protected all these years by the cover, the etched blade definatly increases the value, do not except any lowball offers for this one, between the 100% gilting, the monogram, and the etch you have a fairly valuable piece.

    Condition like this goes to prove that Mint items such as this sword and the sharpened eyes of knowledge ( our Swordsmen here ) ..says that a near 80 yr old artifact certainly does not fit into the " relic" category. Items like this speaks in volumes that there are Mint items that are still surfacing. Congratulations on an awesome acquisition and sharing with this community. " Nothing is impossible "

    Surviving Minty condition depends upon the keeper.

    Not that I can find. The bag appears pretty plain.
