Luneschloss sword appear on page 109, lower of Swords Of Germany 1900/1945 by John R. Angolia.

The crossguard features a stylized open-wing eagle with large polished shoulders and hand enhanced chest and wing feathers on the obverse langet and laurel leaves and shield on the reverse langet. Black celluloid-over-wood grip is perfect with no cracks or chips and complete with tight triple twisted wire wrap. Plated blade measuring 31 ½” in length grades EX/EX++ showing minor surface wear/runner marks and a few specks and tiny nicks to cutting edge but, no lifting or pitting, and is complete with brown leather buffer pad.
