issued 16 (for 1916) under W (for Wilhelm) with fraktur acceptance
mark to the spine.
The 31 1/6 inch plain double fullered blade is in very good condition
and firm in the hilt. The blackened for war time use hilt is equally
good, bearing the Wilhelm II Prussian crown to the cartouche. Inside
the hilt, the riveted leather thumb loop is in very good order.
The polished wood grip and twisted grip wire bindings are in very
good condition. The blackened steel scabbard is also very good.
The sword sheathes and draws well, if a little tightly.
