1747 Model Prussian Heavy Cavalry / Dragoon's Backsword

Sales enquiries

The hilt is Prussian 1747 model, but the sword could have been made for / used in a number of Germanic states, even Austria / Hungary. The poinçons on the blade looks most like part of a Potsdam inspector's acceptance mark, but we have been unable to positively identify it in any of our reference books.

The impressive 35 1/2 inch straight blade is in good condition, though aged and with some light pitting. Blade firm in hilt. The brass hilt overall very good considering (some repairs). The grip looks original and is in pretty good though worn shape.

A very rare sword and available for only £1200. Please quote item reference K76. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1171 (3.133)
