This is a nice German Bavarian Officer's sword but we are going to spare you all the windbag hyperbole that you would find on the 'big-name' sword and dagger websites. It is an honest 100 year old piece that was doubtless carried by Bavarian artillery during the First World War and ended up in an empty house in Pennsylvania where it was discovered recently. It has never been to a militaria show and has never been in the hands of a militaria dealer. This sword is genuine Eickhorn with the back-to-back squirrels logo, not a logo-less sword attributed to Eickhorn like those found on other 'big-name' websites.
This beautiful German Eickhorn sword is in very good overall condition with a splendid, 32 inch long nick-free double-etched, nickel plated Solingen steel blade with the Bavarian motto In Treue fest. The original off-white leather washer is still in place.
The scabbard still retains about 80% or more of its original black paint, and has no dents. The black covered wooden hand grip is in very good condition with no pieces missing. The nickel plated handle hardware shows plenty of use in terms of the plating (perfectly obvious in our photos) but is not beat-up or damaged in any way.
