WW2 German Luftwaffe Sword, Paul Weyersberg. Veter

The leather to the handle has some minor scuffing but the wire is complete, metal nickle fittings are stained from patina but have no damage. The blade has a nice clear makers stamp and a luftwaffe acceptance stamp, blade is quite clean and bright, just two very small nicks to the edge and a slight kink near the tip, tip is original to the blade.There is a letter mark to the underside of the cross guard. The scabbard has lost its leather cover but has no knocks, the leather hanger is complete but one end has come adrift from loose stitching.
Having been stored in an attic till this last month the sword has survived in good original condition, the gent who brough this in to the shop told me it belonged to his father who was a dispatch rider for the RAF during WW2, he remembered playing with it as a child and has decided it was time to sell it on.
