Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very attractive sword for the money! It is an artillery pattern sword from the German Empire that would date from just before the 1st World War. This is the pattern of sword that is known as the Prussian Model 1873 Artillery Sword. These swords usually aren't my bag but this one appealed to me. It has the full-length 29-3/4th inch blade. At the base of the blade it has the German maker's marking from Solingen under the langet. On the top of the blade it has the Crown stamp with the block "W" for the Prussian Kaiser Wilhelm. It also has the "06" which is for the production date of 1906. The grip is constructed of a single piece of wood with the majority of the leather covering. The sword is accompanied by the original metal scabbard. The scabbard is complete with the single mount and ring. For the scabbard, two rings on a steel scabbard indicates pre-1906, in 1906 the lower ring was ordered removed, then in 1910 all scabbards were to be blackened. It also has the drag and throat present and accounted for. The back of the guard as well as the top of the scabbard have the matching regimental issue stampings. This is a nice displaying sword for the price of a U.S. belt and buckle costs these days.
