Sales enquiries

The meaning of the often seen "1414" next to the Passau Wolf on sword blades has long been debated. It appears this is not a year, but a talismanic (good omen) number. What is interesting about this sword is the fact there is a name inscribed to the hilt; it looks like "Solicard", perhaps the original owner's name, but you make your own mind up.

The 32 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition for its age, there is a slight bend approximately half way down but this could possibly be easily corrected if desired. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good order with no apparent damage. The brass twisted wire grip and ferrules are likely to be more recent replaced, but are in good order in any event.

Look, lesser swords sell elsewhere for £2500. Our price is just £1700. Please quote item reference R58. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0525-1.18 (2.207).
