No maker.  Nickel-plated hilt fittings show light surface w/speckling to plating primarily to edges of pommel and highlights of crossguard and obverse langet with much factory lacquer remaining in the recesses of the well detailed Red Cross emblem on the obverse langet. Black bakelite grip plates are perfect with no cracks or chips, but with oxidation to retaining screws. Polished double sawtooth blade grades EX+/EX++ showing minor runner marks and light gray shadowing/specks, but no pitting or nicks to the cutting edge. Reverse ricasso is stamped “Ges.Geschützt” and is complete with brown leather blade buffer pad. Dent-free, steel scabbard retains approximately 90% of the original black enamel showing minor surface crazing to the black enamel and missing paint primarily on center obverse and lower reverse shell. Nickel-plated scabbard fittings show light surface wear and some surface speckling primarily to lower fitting, but no dents or damage to retaining screws. Hewer is complete with an original 4-rivet, triple-stitched leather frog in EX+ condition showing light surface wear but no rips or tears or damage to stitching.
