This nickel sword is in very nice condition and what makes it even nicer is that it is marked to the first flak-regt. That is on the upper fitting of the scabbard and it is also marked on the blade. On the reverse side where the maker mark is. The wire grip is in nice condition and the fittings have all started to tone to a nice dark color. Has its hanger nicely intact with very minimal wear to the leather on the scabbard. Hard to find marked swords.
