WW1 Bavarian Cuirassier Cavalry Officer's
Sword, For Sale
In good condition, a scarce WW1 Bavarian Cuirassier Cavalry Officer's
Sword, maker: Pack & Sohn.
A scarce sword. Cuirassiers had little mounted roles to play in
WW1 and were consigned to the history books after that war. Most
likely this officer's mount ended up as a roast dinner for the regiment
while he manned a machine gun post.
The 29 inch blade is etched "In Treue fest" (steadfast
in loyalty) both sides. There are some inert rust patches towards
the point, but the sword is overall good and firm in the hilt. The
hilt and grip are good, as is the original sword knot. The black
painted steel scabbard is good for the age, and the sword sheathes
and draws well.
Scarce sword in above average condition and at a nice low price
of £600. Please quote item reference AD29. Further / full
sized images available upon request. Box 0445-1m (1.739).
