This is a fine quality specimen of a Police Officer Degen, which closely resembles an SS Officer Degen, but for a few small differences.  Notably, the lower scabbard fitting is screwed in place, rather than pressed in as it is, with the SS sword.  Also, of course, the grip bears the Police insignia instead of the SS Rune.  This model is by the WKC firm, and features a near flawless factory matte-finish blade.  No sharpening or damage.  WKC logo and lettering stamped into the blade base, as well as the "SS" mark on the reverse.  Scabbard is straight, and black paint is 100% original and about 85 to 90% present with no corrosion.  The officer who wore this sword was also a member of the SS, as indicated by the original SS Sword Knot in bullion, present on the piece.  Age is a perfect match, leading me to believe it's original to this sword.  Blade length is 33 1/2 inches long.
