6/15/18 - Deluxe 'Lion Head' with red glass eyes. "Anton Wingen" manufacturer. Extra high quality with the 'Lion Head' handle was issued to army officers during WW2. Handle is heavily chiseled (engraved) and in excellent condition. Blade is mint bright with no defects except for some normal scabbard wear. Scabbard is black enamel feeling, but could possibly be repainted. Our guess is it has been since it's so minty. Guaranteed original and authentic.
