Finally a reasonably priced NSKK. The blade one has a bit of stain, the crossgrain is still clear and the etch is nice and dark! There is minor age throughout. The scabbard is a nice one with 98% of its repainted surface intact. There are scratches and a wee dent just above the middle reverse fitting. The ball is perfectly round and all five screws remain intact! The plated chain is in good shape. It has some very minor plating loss around the reverse of the upper clip from honest period wear. For those of you who like to follow me against the textbooks, indeed the correct link is stamped "NSKK Korpsführung Musterschutz" and the other, A,(Assmann)with the RZM 5/8 designation. All this is correct and textbook. The link holes are the correct horseshoe shape and the snap functions well! The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap. The crossguards retain good plating, 99%! There is only minor loss right at the wood, exactly where you expect to see it. The beautiful multi-toned hardwood grip displays excellent grain with tones from light brown to black. It has a few pressure marks, again exactly what you want to see on these examples that were worn. The desirable nickel eagle is perfectly fit. The roundel retains 99% of its enamel and also has a perfect fit. Nice dagger.
