German Dueling sword.

20th Century.   The sword was used in a duel fought by Walther Curt & Seff Guba on the 2 March 1925, as marked on the blade.

It was thought to be a sign of courage to bear a scar across the face during a duel, hence the blade has a square tip.   It was designed to cut the opponent rather than to stab.

Very good condition.   Traces of original nickel finish on blade.
