    Prussian IOD 89 Transition Sword (Infanterie-offizierdegen 1889)

    Hi all, I thought I'd share a scacer variant of the common Prussian Infantry Officers Sword, Pattern 1819. I bought this sword primarily due to the post-war, Weimar era hilt. The sword came as one unit but these swords are readily disassembled and parts switched out and this is something all collectors should be aware of. For me the parts of the whole were worth the price. The complete and original sword should have a handle eagle matching the eagle on the hilt and a black painted scabbard with a single ring. I do not know the maker so I'm hoping another Imperial collector can recognize this maker.

    I'm working out of "Infanterie-offizierdegen 1889 und Varianten by Hartmann & Herrmann, pg.141. What is the date range for this blade?

    Carl Kaiser and Co. folded in 1904. So you have a parts sword.
