Hello all, 

This is an Infanterie Offiziers Degen from my Family. At some point in history someone took of a emblem frome the handle (I hope it's the right word) 

 

Does anyone know know what's missing there?

Hi,

my link gives the reason why it might be missing. Entnobilitiert means it was stripped of the imperial chiffre because it was used in the Reichswehr. If you find any markings on it, specialists may confirm that.

Hello Rohleder .your great uncle in the pic uses the uniform of a vizefeldwebel of a Saxon regiment. lace and button on collar and one stripe of lace on the cuffs . plus the officers sword. the uniform is of the time of the Empire not republican .apart from that i dont see any chiffre on the sword grip
