WWII German Army Officer Lion Head Sword by Puma
The sword has an overall length of approximately 37 inches with a blade length of approximately 32 inches. The reverse ricasso is marked “PUMA” and “No5”. The blade exhibits light runner marks and scattered spots. The nickel plated blade has several tiny spots of freckling, but overall it is near mint. The pommel is a lion head with red glass eyes. The aluminum fittings retain approximately 90% of their bright gilt finish with wear to the lions mane. The wire-wrapped black trylon grip has two strands of broken wire and several others are loose. The black painted steel scabbard retains approximately 80% of its original black painted finish, with an overall matte appearance, scattered marks, and freckling throughout. Overall very good condition.
