It appears to be a panther head officer's sword made by Eickhorn.
For actual authenticity, you will have to wait for others with more knowledge in this field.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Looks fine to me.

Not much to add other than . Fred
thank you all for the nice comments and help
sorry about the pic being sideway but it wont allow me to straighten it
Nice officers sword. timothy
That is one good looking sword, i like the nice crisp Eagle on the crossguard lancet
It is worth noting that "ges gesch" translates to 'Gesetzlich geschützt' - protected by law
Perhaps this item was produced early in its series - even as an example - model - display piece before it was mass produced...
