RARE SWORD KNOT FOR THE THIRD REICH JUSTICE OFFICIALS SWORD.
To my knowledge I have never had this sword knot on its own before. Once on a sword, but the knot was in very poor condition. The Third Reich era Prison and Justice Officials swords are, in my opinion, one of the ‘prettiest’ of the designs of the time. They are identical in shape and form, except one is finished in silver and the other is gilded. This knot is for the silver Justice Officials version. The knot is actually very similar in design to the Fire Dept knot, however it differs in its colours. The ball is alternate Carmine and gold and the black leather strap has twin gold wire running through it, not silver. This knot shows very little wear and has probably not been issued. Still tied with a period red/white/black thread. This needs to go on a sword!!!
