This leopard-head sword looks great and incorporates all the best features of the period, great quality, evil red ruby eyes set into a fierce animal and an iconic Wehrmacht style eagle placed in front of sun rays depicting the new dawn of the Wehrmacht. The plated 33" blade rates Exc++ being bright and clean with some tiny dots of age. 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 78. The black enamel painted scabbard has some wear. It has good paint with some wear that I have shown you the worse of. The paint is better than 97%. The aluminum hilt has some wear and most gilt remains. The top of the hilt expertly covers the tang. The grip is black celluloid and is in perfect shape without chips or cracks. It is wrapped with triple aluminium wire that really stands out against the black celluloid. Nicely finishing this is a period portepee with some frays. An nice example.
