    Default Wehrmacht parade sword with a filed off eagle and swastika?

    My grandfather bought this sword made by WKC from an antique store in Czechoslovakia in the 80s and now it is in my collection for me to take care of! To me, the sword looks similar to the parade swords that the Wehrmacht had, but just with the insignia filed off, as it does look as if there are filing marks on where the eagle should be and that spot is noticeably thinner than the other side.
    I'd appreciate your opinions a lot, as I'm not 100% sure on this one! The sword in question is the one on the very bottom in the last picture. (I will post about the other sword that is visible in one of the pictures, as soon as I find the section that a Czechoslovakian sword fits into! )

    The sword that was sold in this auction is really similar to the one that I have.

    I think a branch of service insignia was filed off to be used by and individual from another branch of service insignia.
    Thrifty folks those old timers.

    I can't help with the filing off of the langet info , But that is a beautiful looking hilt. I would love to see the blade!!

    Its listed in Angolias book Swords of Germany as being unattributed i.e. witout a model number - it had a short winged cast national emblem(eagle) on the langet.

    Thank you a lot for all of the answers and thank you for moving the thread to the correct section! And Horst, would you be able to get a picture or a scan of what it says on the book? I'd definitely be interested in seeing it!

    Thank you a lot for your answers and the photos! It's awesome to see what this type of a sword looked like in its initial shape. My grandfather was quite surprised as well when I found out the fact that it might indeed be an original German sword from WWII era! I might try and get some more pictures of it soon.
