Description:

Measuring 38 inches overall, with a 33 inch nickel finished blade with etched cavalry themed decoration and niter blue backgrounds. The left side of the blade bears of scene of cavalry mid-charge, and the right is marked "Sigism. Bengsch/10. (Preuss.) Reiter-Regiment. Established in 1920, the 10th (Prussian) Cavalry Regiment would be deployed in response to the emergencies of the early Weimar era, be listed and organized under multiple different names (both from regular changes in name convention and deliberate attempts to obscure the growth of the Wehrmacht), and provided men for the invasion of the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia. The unit as a whole chiefly served as a training element for reconnaissance units, and would disband in 1939. Sigismund Bengsch has not been positively identified. Nickel finished guard, with wire wrapped black celluloid grip and black enamel finished scabbard.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with some mild bubbling/flaking of the nickel finish, strong etching, and some spotting on the otherwise exceptionally fine blade. The scabbard is fine, with flaking and areas of brown patina.
