Original WWII German Army Officer’s Sword By Eickhorn Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. This Pattern sword is a brass example, with most of the original gilding intact. The Wrangel has a rounded pommel with a large raised oak leaf at the center. The backstrap features oak leaves and acorns which extend out on to the grip tabs and “P” guard. The ferrule also has fine oak leaves and acorns. The reverse of the guard has a plain oval area to accept a monogram, while the obverse has an open-winged, “Art Deco” style eagle. The detailing remains outstanding throughout the bird and wreathed swastika. The grip of this example has a crack on the celluloid at the top (see photos) . The rest of the grip is in good condition, tightly wrapped with twisted brass wires. The scabbard is straight throughout. The original paint is good, although some of it is missing from the chape. Overall the paint is about 65% intact. The 31 inch blade has high quality nickel plating and remains in good condition. It is stamped with the Eickhorn Squirrel trademark . The blade does not completely fit into the scabbard due to something inside the scabbard (possibly from kids playing with it at some point, we have not attempted to remove the obstruction. The scabbard may be mis-matched too (priced accordantly) Nice clean example! 100% Guaranteed to be authentic Brought home by a solider as a trophy of war. A very desirable example.
