Third Reich Police NCO Sword by Paul Weyersberg with Capture Label
The police degen has an overall length in the scabbard of approximately 37 inches with a blade length of approximately 31 1/4 inches. The matte blade is generally bright, with some speckling on both sides of the ricasso. The ebony grip shows surface wear but it is without chips or cracks. The aluminum grip eagle has fine detail. The guard, pommel, ferrule, and upper scabbard fitting all show some loss of the plated finish and resulting rust. The black gloss paint on the scabbard is largely intact. The scabbard has several shallow dents that do not impair the ability to draw or replace the sword. The scabbard bears an old adhesive “Dynamo” label reading “Fort Driant Metz France 1944”.
