Early Luftwaffe Officer\'s Sword - Paul Weyersbe
This uncleaned Luftwaffe sword is in nice condition throughout, having good patination over the nickel mounts. The pommel has good edges with no hits and the stamped oak leaves and acorns that run around the pommel upper edge are all nicely executed. The medallion insert has fine brass sunwheel swastikas and all of the silvering still remains within the legs. The cross guard sunwheels are not the brass type and retain their nickel finish. The carved wood base grip has excellent Moroccan leather covering showing only mild usage. The grip is tightly wrapped with springy-style dual brass wire. The scabbard is completely straight. It has outstanding Moroccan leather covering showing no wear and no flaws - a really fine scabbard here. The patinated nickel scabbard mounts are in fine condition, being retained by headless side screws. The original crescent hanger is in place and has good leather. The blade is a mint beauty with its quality nickel-plated surface. The reverse ricasso is etched with the two ovals which contain the firm's name and location, "Paul Weyersberg & Co. / Solingen". In the center, is the sword placed between two wheat shafts. The original blade buffer remains in place. A very fine, untouched early sword here.
