The rarest of all the Field Marshall Series swords named after a famous German leader. The plated blade rates Exc++ being bright and clean with no rust, no sharpening no shortening. There is the the slightest amount of age and the very tip is slightly dulled, if you look at period pics the blade was often drawn and the tip put to the ground. The blade is stamped with the correct mid-period Eickhorn maker mark and retains it's factory buffer. This pattern is illustrated in Angolia's reference pg 83 and known as Model 1767. The black enamel repainted scabbard is dent-free. The paint is better than 98%. This is a brass based example with some wear to the high areas but other than that the gilt remains. The top of the hilt expertly covers the tang with a huge Wehrmacht style eagle! very nice. The really desirable aspect of this pattern sword is all the handwork. Look at the wee acorns that are all hand punched, look at the reverse of the hilt just below that big ol' cast eagle! again, all hand done matching the outside of the P-guard!! To the reverse is a Jeweler done personalization, (EM 1.12.39" perhaps the guys initials and the date of a birthday or promotion or such. Regardless it's nicely done and gives this a bit of personality. The grip is black celluloid and is in perfect shape without chips or cracks. It is wrapped with tight triple aluminum wire that really stands out against the black celluloid. A beauty for sure!
