    Hi Gary..despite the gold paint ...nice to see it being a Pack Sword.
    We dont see too many of these that often.

    Wait for the Swordsmen to chime in as well.

    As Larry said the examples from Pack are scarcer which is a plus. While it could have belonged to a junior grade NCO, technically the Germans knew it as a "Mannschaftsäbel" for enlisted soldiers who were in a horse mounted/equipped unit as the much smaller off duty dress version of the government issued cavalry sabers. In other words it could also be for Privates with sabers worn by mounted personnel, versus the dress bayonets of the Infantry (and/or other non-mounted formations). Senior grade NCO's issued and/or able to purchase and wear the Officer's saber. Best Regards, Fred
