German Navy Sword Help please.
Been offered this navy sword, it looks to me, to be a Wiemar period sword made by Alcoso. Would be very grateful if anyone had any opinions on this sword as I have been after one for a while, Is it 100% genuine, is the scabbard correct as there are a few staples missing 2/3. All opinions welcome.

I think you are correct Wiemar period nice sword.
It's got a battleship front on profile, plus crossed oars and naval type stuff. Etch is good but a little faint. It looks good to me really and price is ok. The 2 of the 3 stables on scabbard mount are missing, interestingly they are numbered, but I wonder if scabbard is repaired.
