WW1 GERMAN ARTILLERY OFFICERS SWORD WITH ETCHED PANELS TO BLADE
Maker marked (under the langet) to WKC. The blade on this sword is in excellent condition with etched panels to both sides of the blade. One side displays mounted German soldiers wearing spike helmets towing Artillery cannons into battle, The other side displays the the name of the artillery unit which is 1 reit. Batterie Artl. Regt. 6. Both panels are highly decorated. No dents to the scabbard but shows paint wear. There is plating loss to the handle guard commensurate with its age. No cracks to the handle which still retains its wire wrap.
This is a nice WW1 German Artillery officers sword.
