    I agree George. Dealers aren't getting too excited about Civil War swords as of late. The quality swords take a long time to sell and are still not fetching the prices they did in year past. The...

    Need some help with this one

    Picked up this stirrup hilt in an auction. Blade is etched with typical Solingen motifs. Any thoughts on nationality? Extreme relic condition.

    Early US 19th century cavalry sword

    Picked up this Starr cavalry sword and scabbard earlier this year. It's in rough shape, but I'm fond of relic swords.

    Yes, John. I wore it to work yesterday. It was quite a conversation starter :)

    Glad to take a foray back back across the pond. Felt like old times.

    I was going to go with a French heavy cavalry sword. It's the longest blade I've ever owned. Most stout blade, to me, is the 1796 hc.
