A great looking textbook SMF! The more desirable plated blade on this one has some age and stains. It has a beautifully executed "SMF Solingen" maker mark, with a perfectly stamped proof mark just above it! The blade on this one rates a Exc. The buffer pad remains intact. The correct SMF steel based airplane grey scabbard looks good! It depicts awesome details throughout, with the random pebbling, oak leaves and acorns. It remains completely dent free and the headless retaining screws remain intact! The band are aluminum as they normally are. The burnished aluminum SMF Luftwaffe eagle crossguard has amazing detail to its head, feathers, wings and top side oak leaves and acorns. The ferrule and aluminum pommel look great perfectly matching the bands! The burnt orange trylon grip is practically perfect! No chips, hits or cracks while being one tone darker to the obverse as time and age have done it's magic. The aluminum springy wire wrap remains tightly intact. Finishing this is an original but beat portepee. A nice SMF piece that will surely look great in your collection!
