Carl Eichorn is the maker. The blade on this piece does show some wear and scratching with a few spots of light rust which are in the picture; however, the rarity of the piece is that it is Goring Division of the Weimar Police. This is denoted by the swaz in the belly of the eagle. The externals of the piece are still extremely nice. The scabbard is true and has not been touched; however, if someone was so inclined could make it darker. The plating on the upper hilt is excellent and the stag grips are perfect.
