Prussian 1889M Garde Infanterie Degen / Infantry Guards Sword

Sales enquiries

The 1889M is quite a common sword in the collector's market, but this one is special, it bears the badge of the Preußische Gardekorps, with motto "Suum Cuique" (to each what he deserves).

The plain double fullered 74 cm blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt, the hilt with the cypher of Kaiser Wilhelm II is in good condition, the fishskin grip, twisted grip wire bindings and badge of the Prussian Guard Corps are all good, some wear to the fishskin. The blackened steel scabbard is good, a small kink (both sides), nothing much. The sword sheathes and draws very well, the scabbard holding the blade firm when inverted.

Just try to get one of these for less than we are offering ours, only £? (too late, now sold). Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number E39 (778).
