Hi guys, Heres another one to research if you can help.
I just picked up what apperars to be a Prussian Wilhelm 1 bayo
V.C. SHILLING Maker on LH side of blade base
CROWN over W over 87 on back of blade
Small CROWN over F (possibly) below marks above.Proof mark?
5CHR8 on ricasso LH side
13.R.5.66 or possibly 68 on RH side of ricasso
Serching so far looks like its a First type S71/84 with no muzzle ring.
The interesting part is the very old wooden scabboard with metal throat and hook through the frog. The scabboard also has a metal tip with ball.
The only thing that looks wrong is the frog looks like a replacement because the condition is too new
Will add Pictures as soon as possible, any help would be appreciated
