Early Uncleaned Luftwaffe Sword w/Hanger. SMF, seated king TM. Silver-plated hilt fittings show light surface wear with uncleaned age patina/surface wear with 100% of the silver-plating remaining on the background of the pommel and crossguard swastikas with no damage to the well detailed crossguard feathering. Blue leather grip shows scuffing/loss or leather on obverse/reverse but, no evidence of blue polish, and is complete with double-twisted wire-wrap. Plated blade measuring 30″ in length grades EX+/EX++ showing surface wear/runner marks where runners have rested against the lower flats of the blade and a small scuff to lower right edge but, no lifting/pitting or nicks to cutting edges. The reverse blade is stamped with a Waffen-Amt stylized eagle and the number “5” and is complete with a blue leather buffer pad. Dent-free, blue leather covered scabbard shell shows some minor nicks/scuffs to leather, but no rips, tears nor loss of color and no evidence of blue polish. Silver-plated, upper and lower scabbard fittings show age patina matching the hilt fittings with one tiny depression to the obverse lower fitting but, no damage to the four, unturned retaining screws. The integral, blue leather hanger grading EX shows wear/scuffing with some damage to stitching. Nice, uncleaned early SMF example. EX+/EX++ (26779) $1,495.00
