1747 Model Prussian Heavy Cavalry / Dragoon's
Backsword, for sale
A 1747 model Prussian / Germanic backsword for a heavy / dragoon
cavalry trooper with regimental markings to the hilt, in good condition.
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)
