Just to add!

Tom Wittman,Tom johnson and others must own or did own swords that would make most of us mortals
think we found King Tuts tomb!

I bought many swords from Galien David but I wonder who is the king of swords now?

Here are some "forgotten" swords... Mostly worn at the courts of European kings ans emperors during the 19th & early 20th century.

Best regards,

Herman

I agree Herman!

Just wonderful pieces! Like works of art!

Stuff I have never seen!

Condition is unreal! Gilding or plating like new!

Many look to have engraved blades!

Can many be tracked to origin? Country!

I love your ww1 german also!

Now as we look at your many areas of collecting! SA,HJ,swords edgeweapons!

It must be hard to pick the area you enjoy most!

You have a taste for fine items and have really put together a wonderful amount of stuff,many of us can only dream of!

As always thanks for sharing! We all love finding out details to the items and stories or tidbits about them!

We must again thank collectors who are showing wonderful parts of their collections and giving us a inside look at
what many have been able to find!

A life time passion many have perfected in search for items they like!

Please keep it up with close up pics that may unlock our passion of history!

Ritterkreuz, PVON,

Thank you for your compliments!


Most of these court swords bear the national emblems of the countries they represent.

Some even tell you for which king or emperor the holder of the sword was working.

Here are 2 examples:

- Completely on the right: the shell of the guard shows the double headed eagle with the shield of Franz-Josef I, the Austrian-Hungarian emperor (1848 until 1916)

- In the middle: the grip plate has inserted the royal monogram of Ludwig I, the king of Bavaria (1825 until 1848)

I believe that the later "diplomat swords" were based on these earlier court swords.

Best regards,

Herman

guys,,,I'm not a blade guy but these are a real treat to see! This is respect for history, culture, etc,,,,and you guys are doing it well. I can imagine the dedication to conserve and the upkeep to have such fine examples. It's hard work,,,but its part of the fun of collecting!

I agree these are some stunning examples to see.. Thanks for posting..
