Offered is a WW2 era German Army Non-Commissioned Officer’s Sword with Scabbard.
The sword is an 1889 Pattern Officer’s type, with nickel backstrap and doves, head pommel, with wire wrapped black celluloid grip, showing light use and patination overall. The very long, slightly curved 95cm long blade is in very fine condition, with very little if any noticeable wear. The blade shows the maker mark of Carl Eikhorn of Solingen underneath the langet.
The blade fits smoothly into the re-enamelled service scabbard, retaining it’s floating suspension ring, showing small traces of the original paintwork. A very good conditioned sword, with a total length of 110cm, meaning whoever wore/used this sword was an exceptionally tall man.
