Picked this up locally from Veterans Grand daughter, NPEA students Dagger, When I purchased the K-98 type Leather Frog was attatched, in which I carefully removed the frog and wiped down the scabbard with a soft cloth, two top screws still have some green crud on the sides of the screws, the screws have never been removed. Scabbard has original green paint, blade is etched and still looks nice, blade shows some in and out marks, handle shows 1 small chip area to reverse next to lower crossgard, other areas of the handle show numerous small dings, scratches, etc. but overall still looks OK. Blade is Karl Burgsmuller Berlin marked. Inside Tang is not marked, inside Lower Crossguard is marked with a large "E" & then a large "W". Top crossguard nut shows what looks like marks from a set of pliers teeth, but they were made many years ago. More photos are available, am only allowed to load 10 photos here on GMC. Since I am not an Authority on Blade Cross Graining, percentage of cross grainin
