P.D. LUNESCHLOSS, SOLINGEN with Roman helmet and sword within double-oval TM. This uncleaned example features dark, gun-metal gray patina to the superbly detailed oak-leaf embellished pommel and “generic” crossguard pictured on page 99 of Exploring the Dress Daggers of the German Army by Thomas T. Wittmann. Deep orange, solid celluloid, glass-like/amber grip shows virtually no wear with no chips or cracks and grades MINT. Polished blade grades EX+ showing surface wear/runner marks and gray shadowing, but no nicks to the cutting edges and is complete with brown leather blade buffer pad.  Dent-free, silver-plated, “generic” scabbard shows dark age patina matching the hilt fittings with superb detail to the pebbled shell and oak leaf pattern suspension bands. Scabbard is complete with a single, flush-mounted retaining screw as pictured on page 98 of the above reference. Nice Luneschloss example with RARE glass-like/amber grip.
