  2. Unknown German Artillery Sword

    Any ideas on what this sword is? The handle is very similar to the 1915 Wachtmeister Artillery sword (no langets on crossguard or on backstrap).
    But the blade is dated W 91 and has a thin blood...

    Hi Dale, just want to add that some of these of these Kammerstücken swords, particularly the steel hilted 89IOD and the brass hilted lion head artillery sword, can be found with 1916 dates and post...

    Sword Identification Question

    I have a pair of swords I'm trying to identify. They have the brass Gothic style hilt like British swords, but do not have the monarch's monogram on the guard. They both appear to be German made...

    Thanks Dale. I didn't know you were bidding. This is one I've wanted for a while.

    I finally got a Hessian Kammerstueck Issue sword. This one is dated 1898, made by Clemen & Jung, and regimentally marked to the infantry regiment "Prinz Carl" (4th Grand Ducal Hessian) No. 118.152655

    Wehrmacht Re-issue Bluechersaebel

    Hello all. Just want to show some pictures and get some thoughts on what appears to be a WW1 era Bluechersaebel that was re-issued to the Wehrmacht, possibly to a cavalry unit. This sword has...

    It does look very much like Esser’s mark, thanks.
  11. Unknown Sword and Manufacturer Horse Manufacturer Mark for Identification

    Hi,

    Can anyone help me identify this old sword or the horse manufacturer mark?

    Thanks.
  12. Thank you.

    Thank you.

    The blade is the straight double-fullered degen blade but has the Braunschweig "Immota Fides" emblem etched onto it. Maybe officers from Brunswick used the Prussian model 89IOD but turned the...

    O.K., thanks everyone for the assistance.
    I find it interesting that on Imperial KD89s the eagle faces the opposite direction from that on Imperial 89IODs.

    O.K., I have a picture. It's not like the eagle on the colonial swords or on the Weimar period swords. It looks like the Imperial eagle, complete with mace and sword and Wilhelm II cypher on the...

    No. It was the like the guard on a "standard" 89 IOD, but very well detailed/high relief and the eagle's head was facing the opposite direction. I will try to get a picture. But I do not own the...
  17. Question regarding head facing on Prussian Model 1889 Infantry Officer Degen

    Most 89 IOD's I have seen, including the one of mine that I have posted a photo of here, have the eagle on the guard facing the staff rather than the sword. I have seen one where the eagle is facing...

    Thanks for the info. The shield has a monogram or intertwined initials, no crest.

    Do you know of any definitive way to differentiate the infantry model from the cavalry model, or the Hessian from the Baden--particularly a Kammerstueck-Issue Piece with no crest etched onto the...

    O.K. That makes sense because the spine is marked W71. I wondered how the acceptance mark could pre-date the model year. Although I've also seen faschinenmesser M 1864's dated in the 30's...

    Thanks Greg. I also looked through Jeff Knoll's book 'The Imperial German Regimental Marking' but could not make sense of these letters in this combination. It could be a "fantasy" regimental...

    Thanks Dale. The "DPU" marks don't look like any Imperial German regimental marks or post war Weimar unit re-issue marks or post war police unit issue marks that I have ever seen. The font is...
