German 10th Reiter Cavalry Regiment Officer's
Blue Etch Sword, Sold
In very good overall condition, a blue etched WW1 or slightly
post war German 10th Reiter Cavalry Regiment officer's blue etch
sword and scabbard.
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
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 £?
(too late, now sold). Please quote item reference I37 (1039). Further
