    Beating the horse as stated above but etching on blade has me a bit skeptical...Makers Mark is a little rough for my comfort level as well.

    The maker mark and the lion head with grip is correct for model #543.
    IMO someone add fake guard to it.
    I don't like the etch also.
    The grip wire missing too.

    I think it's a Frankenstein sword (lion head #543, Eickhorn Lutzow guard, E-Pack blade).

    Hi Michal....could you please identify the reference book and the author that is posted above for the members here. Since this sword is an oddity..I myself would like to acquire the reference for study. Regards Larry

    Hi
    Probably this book which is Ronnie said .
    But I can not contact a colleague to confirm it. When he will write me back an email I will let know. He wants to sell the sword for $ 1000. However, I will not buy it.

    I sense the Sword Producer "James Atwood"

    I dont remember seeing the SA approving swords for wear..and curious if there is an Order for it. There is no Reference photos I have seen of any SA leadership wearing these swords.

    This also may well be a one of a kind presentation piece also. Regards Larry
