Very nice degen, lovely gold toning. I have the same sword same maker. Hopefully you dont use it as a pool cue lol
LOL! I'll try to refrain!

Excellent Police Officers sword sir.
Thanks for showing.
Thank you to all for the warm welcome!
What I have learned about this type of degen I have gleaned from the internet and questions I have asked on other forums. I'm curious if much has been written about them in reference books? I know there were at least a few different makers, as I've run across different ones for sale on various sites. Is there a resource that catalogs the different sword makers and numbers made of this particular type? Is there anything in particular that points to a year or range of production?
Hi Doc..you could start off with Tom Wittmans SS reference..Exploring the Dress daggers and Swords of the German SS" ..which also includes a study of the Police Degen. Here is Toms site...for his reference. It is exhaustive in content and quite worth it..for the serious collector or researcher. Regards Larry
