1852 Model Bavarian Train Battalion Officer's
In overall good condition, a 1852 Model Bavarian Train Battalion
With Eisenhauer (iron cutting) etched to the blade, the hilts /
guards of these swords are prone to service damage (bending) and
this one is no exception, but still.......
The plain 30 1/2 inch blade has no maker marks, is in good condition
and firm in the hilt. The hilt with bending damage, but is sound
and the folding section still works. The grip is good but some of
the grip wire is astray towards to pommel. The steel scabbard is
good, the original black paint has been worn / scuffed off in several
places. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Nice enough sword, brilliant value at only £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference Q66 (0411). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
