German Imperial Mining Sword by WKC- A very interesting offer. These were often used during the imperial, Weimar, and third Reich periods. This is an early configuration with solid brass fittings throughout. The shark skin grip with triple wire wrap shows light but honest and normal wear. The cross guard has a separately applied imperial eagle over crossed mining axes. This has a beautiful triple engraved blade with virtually no flaws whatsoever. It depicts a patriotic symbol, crossed swords, flags cannons, and filigrees. The brown leather scabbard with solid brass fittings is in excellent condition for its age. The red felt buffer is still intact under the cross guard. This beauty also has a correct, properly tied, knot. Due to its age, there is approximately a ½ inch gap between the cross guard and where the scabbard closes. I have not attempted to push this at all, and believe it is due to a bit of shrinkage over the years. Overall very fine-looking piece.
