Early German SS Sword and knot
A very rare and highly collectable SS Officers early nickel sword in basically uncleaned condition. This is the classic, early, nickel SS Officers sword in untouched condition, though has been looked after in the sense of being in a hallway that was a constant environment. The sword has a nice patina and overall feel of quality complimented by an equally rare sword knot in beautiful condition. Grip has no damage other than the wear of time, SS runes are perfectly fixed and have never been tampered with, though has lost most of the background black definition behind the SS runes, which is not unusual ~ it is nice to see nobody has tried to reblack the background. Grip wire is unbroken and in fine condition. All fittings to the hilt, handguard etc are solid nickel as expected. There is the stamped small SS rune mark underneath the crossguard and on the top throat of the scabbard fitting. Scabbard is in excellent condition with only minor paint flakes/chips, again the norm with scabbards of this age, the upper and lower scabbard fittings are nickel plated steel as expected. Blade is basically unmarked bar a couple of little brownish patches (see photographs) but this does not detract whatsoever. Blade length is 31 inches and the scabbard is 32.5 inches and maker marked with the ‘Horster’ logo. An opportunity for the discerning collector to acquire a rare original and untouched SS Officers sword at an investment price. Original SS Officers swords are considerably rarer than 1936 chained daggers and represent the high point/centre piece of any collection.
