A bargain here! The acid etched fouled anchor blade on this one is well worn with much of the etch lost to time. The “Paul Weyersberg Solingen” maker mark is nicely executed! The tip comes to a sharp point and the fit is nice and tight! The blade on this one rates an VG/Exc. There is age grey/spotting throughout. The leather buffer pad is lost to time, wich most likely account for the crossguard being a bit loose. I do not want to tighten the pommel as the grip does suffer cracks and this will only cause more. The lightning bold style scabbard is brass based and gold gilded. It depicts nice details throughout with the hand enhanced tip, lightning bolts and oak leaf and acorn bands! Both throat retaining screws remain intact, one is a replacement. There are small bumps throughout. The button continues to work well. The crossguard and pommel are also brass based and gold gilded. The two fouled anchors to the crossguard and unique proudly perched kreigsmarine eagle pommel are both beautifully detailed! The grip is wood based and covered in a white celluloid. The brass double twisted wire wrap remains tightly intact! This whole thing has patinaed with time. A good piece at a great price!
