GERMAN NAVAL SWORD.
This is a very good example with naval Depot issue stamps. Fine detail to lions head hilt which still retains much original gilt finish, the obverse side of the folding hilt displays a large naval anchor, the reverse folding and locking hilt fittings is issue stamped N261, this matches the scabbard issue stamp. The white celluloid grip is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks and with all gilt wire remaining. Plain blade shows some age spotting but over all it is still a very nice blade. Black leather scabbard is in fine condition with matching brass gilt metal mounts, the reverse side of the top scabbard mount is stamped with the matching issue stamp N261, the bottom scabbard mount reverse side is stamped with a naval M marine issue stamp. German naval swords are far harder to find than the naval dagger, I probably see 20 daggers for every sword. [Condition: Exc++]
