    Hello all I hope I am in the correct forum I have a troddel I would like some opinions on.It came with a police degen but I think it was made for an Army sword?
    it is leather and what appears to be nylon Perhaps at one time the acorn was white but I think it has toned with age.All comments are welcome.Regards,Geoff

    To me its a standard Officers schword portepee that has changed colour from silver to a yellow patina

    If you want to know which colour were used by which troop then you can see it here:

    Hi Geoff,

    i have discussed it with Wilhelm Saris by pm and he thinks it might well be a Troop colour instead of a patina.
    I have used your photo's and posted them on a German forum, i will inform you about the results.

    Regards
    Ger

    This is the answer from the German Forum Expert on bayonets:

    **Das ist ein normales Portepee des Heeres, große Forrm für den Säbel.
    Der Quast ist aus "Cellophan" ( Cellulosehydrat) ..als Ersatz für Alu... das wurde über die Jahre gelb.**

    translated:
    This is a normal army Portepee, large version for a sabre.
    The pommel is made of "Cellophan" a replacement for aluminium, this turns yellow over the years.

    Regards
    Ger
