A Second War German Army Officer's Sword by Alcoso

A Second War German Army Officer's Sword by Alcoso - Measuring 1,002 mm, with the scabbard on, this sword features an 865 mm long, slightly-curved, fullered, nickel-plated steel blade, magnetic, with a blade spine and a single dull edge, the blade remaining bright and crisp, and having a semi-sharp tip. The blade's ricasso is maker marked Alexander Coppel GmbH (Alcoso), Solingen, with the company's balance of scales insignia. It retains its crossgraining, exhibiting light wear, along with faint scratches common to extraction and return to the scabbard, natural shine, near extremely fine. Brown leather buffer pad, the face of which is dyed dark brown, has hardened but remains intact. Heavy brass gilt steel crossguard with quillon, finely-detailed Army eagle with its talons clenching a wreathed swastika insignia flanked by oak leaves on the crossguard, the reverse of the crossguard with oak leaves. Black celluloid plates with eleven rows of gold-coloured springy wire in the recesses of the ribbed grip, the plates embedded onto either side of the handle and held in place via a long central pin that passes through the supporting guard, running from the crossguard and wrapping around the pommel, joining on to the opposite end of the crossguard, forming the handle. The guard, pommel and handle are adorned with an oak leaves and acorn motif. The sword measures 982 mm in length and weighs 544 grams overall, exhibiting surface wear along with residue in the recessed areas of the handle from cleaning. The scabbard has a durable black painted metal body, magnetic, with flattened u-shaped finial and locket, suspension ring and bracket protruding from the wrap-around loop, weighing 467 grams and measuring 25.5 mm x 882 mm, exhibiting scattered surface wear and scratches in the black paint from active use. A terrific WWII collectible, better than very fine condition. (C:4)
