Sales enquiries

A good sword, either WW1 or just after, the blue etch still vivid, made by Alexander Coppel of Solingen. Regiment name etched in blue to one side, a German cavalry troop in charge the other. A dress sword rather than a fighting weapon, as the riders used rifles at this time.

The 30 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, well etched, firm in the hilt, the hilt with areas of aging (plating loss and surface rust) but good and sound. The grip in very good order for its age. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A superb, well above average example and a bargain at only (was) £550, now £440. Please quote item reference I37. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1039-1m (1.677).
