Sales enquiries

Etched to "Grenadier Regt Zu Pferde Frhr. v. Derfflinger (Neumark) No.3" with cavalry figures to the obverse, this is a folding guard version of the M89 which would have cost the officer more than a solid guard version. Their WW1 death toll.

The 33 1/8 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard is OK; the folding guard sections work but are a little misaligned with use / age as is normal. The composite grip is good. Steel scabbard has lost most original paint and has patina in most areas, plus one tightening screw is missing, but is overall good. The sword sheathes and draws well despite the missing screw.

A really nice enough example and at a decent enough price: £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T19 (0744). Further / full sized photos available upon request.
