Hello, and thank you in advance for any help you can give me. This sword was recovered by my grandfather at the end of the war and has been in my family ever since. We know absolutely nothing on this and i was having issues finding information from reading websites. I'd like to be able to clean it up properly and have a bit of history on this sword. These are just some pictures sent to me so sorry for the potato quality, but i'll have better pictures once it is in my possession next week, the handle seems to be on pretty tightly, though the pin comes out rather easily so my parents didn't want to damage anything by trying to force it off. Thank you again in advance for the help!
