This sword is all stainless steel and is in exceptional condition. Scabbard has original paint and the interesting thing about it, is that at some point someone has put a Army helmet tri-shield insignia. Has the standard recessed screws on the upper fitting and a compression fitting to the lower drag. Unmarked blade in fine condition and the grip is also very clean. The sword is complete with the original SS knot and also a black leather suspension hanger which is SS & RZM proofed. This sword is a very nice rig that is in great condition and of higher quality than most Dachau pieces.
