A 4-band Turkish Damascus SS NCO Sword.  The blade is 29 inches long and features a very robust 4-band pattern, commonly seen on the SS Birthday degens.  Blade to scabbard fit is tight, scabbard is perfectly proportional to the blade.  White buffer pad is present.  Handle retains 95% or better of the black painted wood.  Scabbard shows slight wear, but retains most of the paint.  Please note: I added this knot to the piece, but it is a beautiful and original example of the SS NCO knot.  Tang is marked Echt Damaszener.  This would have been created most likely by Paul Muller or one of his assistants and is an outstanding example of what his forge at Dachau was capable of.  Regular NCO SS swords go for $3000 to $4000 in this condition, so for a reasonable multiple, you get an artifact whose rarity and craftsmanship far exceeds that multiple.  Please note: This item was discussed on Wehrmacht-Awards, and some thought the blade to be post war due to flaws in the damascus.  One thing is certain ... this is an original NCO SS Sword, and the damascus is 100% original Turkish Damascus by Paul Muller.  It has none of the trademarks Muller used during the post-war period.  I offer these comments in the spirit of full disclosure, with the statement that we still believe this piece to be a period wartime example.  Please also note that we sold the knot seperately since this last listing, so the knot is NOT included.
