This is a nice example of a very rare frog to find. These were used mostly by LAH, Grossdeutschland and Feldherrnhalle units on ceremonial guard duty on official buildings in Berlin. Frog is padded as expected for parade ones. Rivets are aluminum, which is correct as these were early made. Paint has yellowed some with age - which is a good sign - and has cracked in places (surface only). One deeper crease from a blunt hit on the front. It has blackened at friction points with the bayonet, again as can be expected. It remains in great condition and will make a great addition to a specialized display.
