This blade retains nearly all original cross graining and it is marked M7/66, which is for Eickhorn. The motto retains most all original burnishing and the metal washer is solidly intact. No lifting to the plating on the guards or the pommel at all. The wire is toned but nice and tight. The leather is 100% original and is in excellent condition. The fittings on scabbard match patina on th dagger nicely. Extremely collectible piece.
