    Lightbulb Unknown Saber--possibly Württemburg circa 1886

    Greetings; I found this on the usual suspect site...Made by WK&C, dated 1886 with Crown / W. No unit marks, at all. acceptance marks in usual place for Württemburg..Pipe back, and only one ring on the scabbard, which fits perfectly...

    Overall Length is 1,04 m. Blade Length; 86 cm, Thickness at hilt, 8 mm, Width at hilt 30 mm.

    I do not have a scale here to determine weight, not accurately anyhow!!

    It looks Württemburg-ish to me, but having a bakelite hilt in 1886 is very interesting, I know it was not disassembled by idiots, as the acceptance mark on the peen is intact. (A common German practice!) So if it was rebuilt, it was done by the same guys who made it...(Same Fraktur Letter!)

    Well: I have found that Karl was King of Württemburg in 1886, so this one is Wilhelm I of Prussia..
