    Great item.

    SS NCO swords are rarer than officer versions .......................

    In very fine condition, even the scabbard paint exceptional.

    -- Is that right, eh? Interesting. I knew they were quite rare but didn't think more so than an officers! Do you know why Robin?

    From the photos, for me it's quite possibly a repainted shell. As well as the areas of the upper scabbard fitting background to the Wotan's knot design, and perhaps also the background of the runes. I could certainly be mistaken. But being quite familiar with these degens, that's the impression that I get. All the same, a nice degen.

    Every SS-VT/SS-TV/Waffen-SS officer commissioned before 1941 got a sword. Selected Allgemeine-SS officers likewise. So Officer swords are rare, but not THAT rare.

    Only very senior Waffen-SS NCOs (Sgt. Majors, basically) qualified for a sword .................. and there were far less of them than there were officers.

    Hence the rarity of the NCO sword.

    Put it this way .................. I have an SS officer sword, a Police officer sword (with SS pommel runes), and a Police NCO sword.

    The only one of the 'set of 4' I don't have is yours !!

    Excellent condition and a nice addition to any collection. Whittmann usually has 4-5 Officers for every NCO he has in stock. Rare but they still sell for about half what a offers in similar condition.
