Sales enquiries

Marked "9 U 4 152" to the inside of the guard (9th Uhlan Regiment, Troop 4, weapon 152) and "9 U 5 61", so a later marriage but for the same regiment. The Prussian 9th Uhlan started WW1 on the Western Front but then were sent to the Russian Front where the fighting was much more fluid and where cavalry were still used as cavalry. So this sword very likely saw combat. The cutting edge has been ground (sharpened), possibly in the field as the German hated their weapons for lack of cutting ability.

The blade is in good condition but has been ground sharp along the entire cutting edge (I can not tell if it is period or not). Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard generally good but with a light rust all over and some bending / distortion but not much. Grip very good. The original sword knot is aged but good and may indicate this is a war trophy. The steel scabbard has dents and fold cracks and splitting but is sound. The sword sticks hard in the scabbard and we recommend they are kept apart.

It is nice to have a regiment marked WW1 German sword for a change, especially one from a regiment that still used their horses. Well priced at £500. Please quote item reference number V70. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1049-101x19x16 (2.325).
