    I compared that close up to these Cavalry Swords :

    but I think it is slightly different - can anyone confirm ? Is this something different or just a slight variation ? Thanks for checking.

    I would think a lion head pommel, but agree with Ralph most likely a Heer officer sword and the cannons suggests Artillery, though some generic swords would have both swords and cannons motifs aimed at both the Infantry and Artillery buyer. Quite possibly the Polizei officer in the photo was a former Heer officer and retained his sword for parade purposes. The portepee seems to be black leather with 3 rows of silver bullion which certainly could be Feuerwehr, but there could be some red there we can't see.

    That's a fine looking sword Ralph. It's interesting some swords are maker marked and others are not. We see the same situation with the "dress" KS98 bayonets. The manufacturers did retail their own production. Eickhorn, WKC, Alexander Coppel etc all produced catalogues and price lists for swords dress bayonets and daggers. These seem to have been maker marked. Why some production is not marked I think arises from the relationship with the private purchase Military Outfitter shops, for which there were many. It's possible these shops may have retailed generic unmarked swords sourcing them from various makers. They may have been sold at prices under the maker marked swords and dress bayonets. We know this relationship existed with a large retailer of Fire Service equiptment, Linnenbrugger & Ellermann (L & E Bielefeld) where Eickhorn seems to have been the main maker of the sidearms that only had the retailers name marked.
