WWII German Early Army Dovehead Sword With Oakleaf Langet by WKC- This example is very similar to the example illustrated in the Angolia Sword Book, the WKC pattern No. 29A, page 135 left, with the exception that this piece contains the engraved oak leaves on the obverse langet vice the eagle and swastika.  The hilt is the early solid brass style with a gilded finish which shows wear/age grading an even 80% with thinning throughout.  The pommel, backstrap P-guard and ferrule are adorned with engraved oak leaves and acorns.  Exquisite workmanship here!  The black bakelite grip displays a couple of faint scratches probably caused by storage or the owner’s ring.  It is wrapped with triple, twisted silver plated brass wire with the center stand being larger and twisted in the opposite direction.  The reverse langet is blank while the obverse langet is adorned with two crossed oak leaves.  The nickel plated blade measures approximately 32” in overall length with the plating at 100%.  The spine edge and tip is factory crisp while the lower edge contains one small nick.  The obverse ricasso area is stamped with the famous WKC logo containing the Knight’s head and immediately below are the company’s initials WKC.  The blade grades mint-.  The dark brown leather washer is intact, grading strong excellent.  The scabbard shell is totally straight to all sides.  The original factory black paint shows wear/age in the form of paint spiders, rust to the lower drag and lifting.  Sounds much worse then it really is!  This is a MUST for the serious Sword collector for pieces containing the oak leave langet are extremely RARE!  Excellent.
