Thx for the nice pics Ivan!
It was my pleasure helping you to add another Pack to your collection.
Winning the German auction was a nice thing, this degen is of a very high building quality and having the Original portepee/knot still on it is amazing, considering these imperial degens are over 125 years old.
The etch itself is hard to get on pics but its a lovely sharp one.
I also like to typical Pack dots pattern on the hand protector, which is only used on Packs "Eisenbahn und Verkehrs- Beambten Degen"
I can add a few pics to this post which show the high detailed sword and its superb building quality
Boy, that Degen is a beauty!! Really interesting with the lightning bolts.. never seen one like it.. Congrats Ivan! Kevin.
a lovely sword.
Indeed, a very nice sword. I never tire of seeing
Wow! What a work of art, congrats on this museum quality sword!
I am always amazed on what can still be found.....and more amazed of unheard and unseen artifacts never before surfaced. Another Great find Ivan....thanks to Gerrit..and another First for the WRF. Congratulations gentlemen for making this forum what it is today . Great work !! Regards Larry

I love seeing stuff like this that is hard to find and beautiful
I did some research before i started bidding on this degen, and sofar I only found 1 more, which had an unmarked blade and lacked the nice dots pattern and crisp detailed features like this one!
When i saw the Pack logo Ivan poped up in mind.
For sure this is a very rare beauty, and its now in the right collection!
Thank you guys
Yes, this is a very interesting sword and for sure not easy to find.
Ger, I really appreciate your help ,you're a good guy.
