The Holy Grail for many! This is an absolutely beautiful piece. The polished maker marked blade is an Mint- example with near perfect crossgrain. There are no stains, sharpening or abuse, perfect tip and the desirable early Alcoso maker mark to the obverse. Yes, many were issued this way. The thin blue leather blade buffer is in place. Classic Alcoso fittings are all silver washed. The regal left facing bird has great details. The plating is excellent being 99.9% intact. The elegant mother of pearl grip plates are crack and chip-free. The silver plated undented scabbard is set off by well detailed bands. Plating to the scabbard is 100%. It is completely dent free. The throat is retained by two unturned dome-head screws, exactly as it should be. Overall this is a textbook beauty that wonderfully shows off hand fitted German craftsmanship! For the guy that demands the best
