This textbook WKC 2nd Model Luftwaffe example is in pristine condition. It is probably an example made after the War started, as it has the white grip that we normally see on these vintage pieces. The pommel cap is a real beauty, being the type with pebbling behind the oak leaves. The leaves are nice and crisp, and the two swastikas have the dark color gilt at 100% still over the surfaces. The crossguard is the traditional type used by WKC, having the cast in oak leaves and acorns. This crossguard has an extremely crisp eagle, flying to the viewers left, and clutching a mobile swastika. The details are phenomenal to this new-like guard.
On the reverse, the pebbled panel has 100% of the original, factory darkening. The ferrule nicely matches the rest of the mounts. The white grip has turned a beautiful, ivory color, and is in pristine, perfect condition. More than likely, the grip is a plaster filled type. The grip is tightly wrapped with springy, aluminum wire. An outstanding hilt here!
The scabbard is also an outstanding example. This  minty scabbard has 100% of the airplane gray coating. The bands have been coated to match the scabbard. This scabbard has very crisp pebbling, and the bands have outstanding oak leaves, with the pebbling behind them. The throat is left in its natural steel color, and it is retained by one flatter style side screw, in the traditional WKC style. The throat is also complete with the rounded look that we see on these examples.
