Sales enquiries

The grip of this sword has never had a surface (there is no trace of one anywhere and the grip bindings are complete and tight). This is therefore a very rare mid-WW1 Prussian NCO's sword with war time limitation forced polished wooden grip. The sword was made by / is marked to Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie Solingen. It has an issued 16 (for 1916) under W (for Wilhelm) with fraktur acceptance mark to the spine.

The 31 1/6 inch plain double fullered blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The blackened for war time use hilt is equally good, bearing the Wilhelm II Prussian crown to the cartouche. Inside the hilt, the riveted leather thumb loop is in very good order. The polished wood grip and twisted grip wire bindings are in very good condition. The blackened steel scabbard is also very good. The sword sheathes and draws well, if a little tightly.

Just find another at any price, then our price of £700 should make you very happy, unless you are too late! Please quote item reference number AC11. Further / large images available upon request. Box 0185-1m (2.065).
