M1848 Danish Schleswig / Holstein Infantry
In very good condition, a rare Prussian made M1848 Danish Schleswig
/ Holstein infantry sword captured by the Danes in the First Schleswig
Possibly the most attractive infantry sword ever made. A Danish
Schleswig / Holstein M1848 Sword, made by P D Luneschloss of Solingen.
Regiment markings to quillon finale and the lack of scabbard show
this is one of the swords captured and then used by the Danish forces
(the original metal scabbards were replaced with leather ones that
rarely endured the test of time). So this is a battle trophy of
sorts, from the First
27 1/4 Inch blade with maker / other marks, firm in hilt. Hilt
good. Grip good. Grip wires look complete and sound.
A rare and beautiful sword! Please quote item reference L41 (1219).
