German sword

Article about: That is the oddest looking ugly ducking I have ever seen, mirror reversed photo would make sense.

    This is not my field at all, but this is available in a local auction may not get much interest.

    I am aware that the pictures are inadequate, but that's all I have, can anyone let me know if from these pictures anything looks out of place and what it might be.

    Having a swas pointing the wrong side we could have a extremly rare type of sword here!!!
    I agree with the "junk type"!
    And when I say "junk" it is in no way connected to the name or therm Junkers or Junker.

    The swastika isn't correct. No wire wrap on the grip. Bad photo but it doesn't look like an original trade mark. Overall poor quality. I'm not a sword collector but I have owned a few of them. If I saw this sword at a show the word junk would pop in my mind in about a half a second.

    While I (agree) with the opinion, but it does make for a better thread than just one word.
    So thanks Kirby for the for adding your explanation and Kris.

    Thanks for the replies, I don't understand how I missed the swastika being wrong...I guess you see what you want to......and while I feel like fool it could have been worse.

    I have seen a reversed Hakenkreuz on known good items before.
    But not on a Degen. And what is the makers mark? got better pics you can do please.
    This will help our data base.

    Its ashame that the photo can not be enlarged..it is possible the photo is mirror reversed.
