Original Nazi Army Officer's Sword by Anton Wingen Jr.
This is an outstanding example of the earlier high quality sword with an all-brass hilt. This sword features a near excellent 32 1/2" gleaming chromed steel blade that is unsharpened with no edge dings and a straight sharp point. The sword ricasso bears the maker's logo for the Anton Wingen Jr. firm. The original leather blade washer is present. The handle fittings have high profile oakleaf designs on the grip strap and pommel. The crossguard features a raised spread-winged eagle/swastika. The black celluloid grip rates near excellent with tight triple brass wire grip wrap. The steel scabbard retains about 90% of its original glossy black paint finish and has both original throat screws present. There is one slight "doorway" depression dent on the scabbard body (most likely happened when the officer was exiting his staff car). An extremely fine sword. Item #347-1
