Hmmm...I don't really like the shape of the letters, that type of letter pattern does not look to be what would be seen on a Reich piece....

I agree Ben ,that kind of letttering I have never seen on Nazi blades.
A theory is........ maybe post war the family of the owner [doubt the owner as he would not be wanting to deface it]had the name engraved on as a keepsake ? maybe then gave it to the soldier as a 'surprise' ?
Surely no one would be stupid nough to deface an otherwise good looking Army in the hope of adding value???
Mind when you see some of these idiots selling on Ebay I w :? :cry: ould'nt be surprised!!

My theory on it is that 1. it is a post war engraving by the original or not original owner, of their last name. 2. Is that it may be a jewelers engraving that was made pre-1945-adam

SOME REMARKS I MADE TO ADAM ON THIS WERE, I HAVE SEEN ALOT OF ENGRAVED PIECES AND NOT TO JUMP THE GUN QUICK ON THIS ENGRAVING. ITS NOT CENTERED ON THE BLADE, WHICH DOESNT MEAN MUCH. ADAM IF THE DARK SPOTS TOWARD THE END OF THE NAME GO INTO THE ENGRAVED AREAS ON THE LETTERS THEN IT WOULD BE A SIGN THAT AT LEAST ITS NOT A RECENT JOB. AS I SAID ITS NOT A PIECE I WOULD BE ASHAMED TO OWN. ANY HISTORY YOU CAN PROVIDE FROM THE SEELER?
