$21500.0

I acquired this sword in 1984 from a WW2 US Army vet who resided in Paducah, Ky. Vet was in a Tank Battalion and told me he "liberated" this from a chalet somewhere in Southern Germany. Kept it with him in the tank and brought it back to the states. I've had it since 84 and showed it a couple times even at the Samurai sword show in Chicago. Lots of "how much ?" This is a magnificent sword and by far the finest German sword I have or probably will ever own. True forged banded damascus and in near mint condition. Beautiful Gold and blued decorations and the presentation dated 1894. This is a sword of Nobility and presented to one Artillery Officer from another. A family crest is noted on the reverse langet and 2nd & 3rd panels of blade. believe this is correct - blade has;VON LIPPA FREIHERR VON STEIN also EISENHAUER ECHT DAMAST Under guard; GESCHOTZIES (over) MUSTER spine has the retailer; GUST.GUNTER METZ. EISENHAUER ECHT DAMAST noted on blade indicating true damascus steel. The name STEIN would be the recipient of this historical sword. Blade length; 33" or 84cmOA length of blade/handle; 39" or 99cm Width at ricasso 1 1/2" or 38mmChrome/nickel scabbard has slight wear. The sword looks even better in person than my humble photos !
