    Only one year!

    Guys: Take a look at these Württemberg Infantry Officers' Swords. (IOD 89) On the left, dated 1914 and on the right, 1915. Same model, different years of acceptance.

    Neat Dale. I have not seen the solid iron guard item of issue sword before. Here is the private purchase folding iron guard model.

    Interesting. When I was volunteering at the New Brunswick Museum there were two versions of the Prussian version that I always meant to find out more on..and was never successful. Unfortunately I only took these four pictures and I haven't been there for a few years.

    Just like Württemberg as shown above, Iron hilt is 1915 or later, the Tambak hilt it before 1915. The 1915 wooden grip is missing the cypher. A common defect for some reason.
