Post WW2 Alcoso German Lions Head Artillery
Officer's Sword, sold
In very good condition, a post WW2 Alcoso German Lions Head Artillery
Officer's Sword with portepee.
With the post 1940 Alcoso Trademark (AWS is for "Alcoso Werks
Solingen"), this is a plain bladed German artillery officer's
sword, scabbard and portapee.
The 31 inch blade with Alcoso Trademark is in very good condition
and firm in the hilt. The hilt also good, as is the grip and associated
twisted grip wire bindings. Portapee (sword knot) with some fraying
but good. The blackened steel scabbard in good condition. The sword
sheathes and draws well.
A very nice, well above average example (in virtually parade ground
condition). A great looking sword for just £? (too late, now
sold). Please quote item reference number W40 (1156). Further /
full sized pictures available upon request.
