A rare bird! This one rates 9 out of 10 for rarity on McSaars SA rarity rating list! The blade on this one is in wonderful condition! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “G.L. Köller Nachf. Solingen” maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible all the way from the hilt to the tip. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates an easy NM. It only shows the slightest spotting throughout and the common surface scratches. The scabbard is steel based and brown anodized. It shows three pressure marks to the one edge and one larger to the reverse. It continues to hold a nice dark brown finish to it! The solid nickel scabbard fittings look excellent matching the crossguards in color and patina! The ball remains perfectly round and all four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “P” (Pommern). The brown hardwood grip looks good! It has four hairline cracks and the slightest pressure marks throughout. No flakes or chips. The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful details and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. It is slightly oxidized. A rare one with a beautiful maker mark and blade!
