DESCRIPTION

This is a beautiful Lionshead SS Sword manufactured by WKC.  It's in nearly flawless condition, and is of the type encountered in Wittmann's book, and other publications.  Sword shows light wear to the paint on the scabbard, heavy silvering on the brass pommel.  Red eyes in the lion's face are perfectly set with red stones.  Plated blade grades STONE mint.  Affixed to the sword is a beautiful early SS Portepee ($1000 to $1200 value).  An exact sword of this type was acquiried from the estate of SS Officer Bernhard Frank several years ago (more info to the winner), so the sword, as an "SS" sword, is documented in collecting.  This sword would have been worn prior to the institution of the SS Degen in 1936.  Please note: the scabbard is also personalized BENEATH the front langet with the initials "Dr. B" - I have ever confidence this is the name of the sword owner, and not the veteran - a veteran would have put his name somewhere prominent for everyone to see!
