Its the Blucher pattern from the field marshall series made by Carl Eickhorn
The scabbard should be black enamel paint
Looks like the paint was stripped for some strange reason. I used to have two of these a long time ago. Both were Dove-heads.
i see thank you for info guys, and brings me to next question what is it worth ?
odd that the paints been stripped down never seen that before its definatly worth a fair bit even with the lack of paint
IMHO, the ballpark value on this would be $650 to $850 depending on overall condition. You've got some rust and pitting on the blade, and as mentioned the paint missing on the scabbard is very strange indeed. It's a nice piece, I'd keep it if it was me since you are inheriting it. But that's certainly your prerogative.
Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.
I would think closer to the 650 mark in this condition
The grip has had the wire removed from these pics?
