German Dove Head Army Officer Sword
The sword has an overall length in the scabbard of approximately 39 inches, with a blade length of 34 inches. The blade is bright, with some relatively minor spots and scratches and one or two barely perceptible nicks on the upper edge. The ricasso is unmarked by any manufacturer mark. The guard features an open winged eagle with swastika. The knuckle guard displays a closed wing "Wehrmacht style" eagle. The pommel is a "dove head" style, but the pommel, back strap, and knuckle guard are all adorned with raised oak leaves in relief. The grip is black celluloid over wood. It is triple wrapped with brass wire and the grip is without cracks or chips. The black scabbard paint has some minor scratches but it is essentially entirely intact.
