Original German WWII Early Luftwaffe Officer Sword by SMF with Waffenamt - Mint Nickel Plated Blade
Original Items: Only One Available. This early Luftwaffe Sword has highest quality nickel silver mounts. They do not look to have been cleaned in many years and are developing a desirable patination. The pommel has excellent crisp rims and very nice stamping to the oak leaves and acorns which run around the circumference. The medallion insert sun wheels are really beauties, having great brass finish which really sticks out against the patinated silver behind them. The lower cross guard sun wheels also look really good, having intact silvering also between their legs. The crossguards are nice and crisp and they both have good detail to the feathering of the downward pointing quillons.
The grip is a wood based type having outstanding original Moroccan blue leather covering. This leather is in choice condition throughout and still shows all of its fine graining. The grip is wrapped with twin copper springy wire. A very fine hilt here!
The scabbard shell is nice and straight. The original Moroccan blue leather here is also in good shape. There are no cuts or nips; the only signs of age are a few bruises in the surfaces of the leather but this is to be expected on any Luftwaffe sword. This leather is all there! The scabbard mounts are a fine matching solid nickel silver. They are in perfect condition and they are retained by headless side screws. The blade of this example measures just over 28 inches. The blade has an outstanding nickel plated surface and it is easily in full mint condition. This fine blade has a waffenamt stamping in the fuller area just above the trademark. The trademark features the etched king holding an upward pointing sword. The king is sitting on the firm initials SMF and is positioned above an arch shaped town location Solingen. The leather washer is in place.
An extremely nice early sword here with a mint condition nickle blade!
