Well great looking early rural one! The plated bade on this one looks great! It retains a nice and bright mirror like finish along with a perfect fit and sharp tip! The stamped early "Alcoso" maker mark and spine proof stamp are all crisp and beautifully executed! The blade rates a solid NM. The brown (rural) leather scabbard body looks good! It has the common scuffs and warping due to the runners. It continues to retain all of its stitching and the four vertical lines running through it giving it that finishing touch of German detail! The tombak based, nickel-silver plated scalloped scabbard fittings remain in good condition, matching the hilt in color and patina. The lower has a small dent to the obverse. Both staples remain intact. The scabbard is clearly marked "L.Mg.38." (Landjagerei Polizeiverwaltung) matching the tombak based nickel-silver plated hilt perfectly! Sorry I can't picture it back behind the frog as I will damage it. The scabbard snugly fits the hilt. It depicts wonderful burnished detail throughout, with the oak leaves, acorns and highly detailed pommel eagle! The multi-toned stag grip plates are tightly secured with two aluminum rivets. The centrally placed burnished aluminum police eagle is properly pined and retains nice detail! Finally finishing this is a nicely marked brown police frog, a near impossible accouterment to find. An excellent early police bayonet!
