The quillon is marked with the officer's inital "A". Blade is about 92 cm-long and was lightly sharpened for field use. There is no rust or pitting, and the blade is straight and true. There is some chipping off enamel at the bottom of the grip, and no other blemishes on the hilt. Scabbard has some chipping of the paint, otherwise no rust or other damages. This is a nice and uncommon German WWI cavalry officer's sword.
