    I may have discovered a "real" Cossack Nazi sword similar to the one pictured...but with several differences. im not sure where to look or who to ask and its taken me over a week to now get to being able to post in the forums that ive found with any information on it. mine has the Nazi bird but it appears "coin grade" as far as the etching on the bird and the wings. also it is stamped "43" and a "k" as well as two smaller stamped "birds" also a half moon and some other numbers.

    I found it along with a pink piped green panzer "or heer" officers hat and a soft green Nazi cap along with gear pouches that contained a towel in one and a wool bandage of sort in the other. also there was a shoulder holster belt with the small leather holster, a german gas mask canister and a ww2 us M-1 helmet covered in the green fishnet. it appeared to be all kept together from the same time and not somebodys collection. we cannot find any pictures on the internet that are a close enough match to the sword we found. and so far we still do not know where to go or who to ask.

    I would be happy to find one that is marked the same that is a known fake and keep it for close quarter home defense as well...but we cant and have yet to find it so we are left with the optimism that this sucker just may be the real McCoy. any advice from here would be appreciated! thank you

    This forum is for the study of Third Reich edged weapons...some of which are political others not. There is nothing "Russian" related in this forum and subforums that will be able to enable your search further. I would suggest furthering your search in some of the Soviet forums within this website..as there are highly knowledgeable Gents within those forums..who would know more about " Cossack " history than within these confines here.

    With 4 pages of replies..this thread pretty much answered the authenticity of the first post. Please give this forum a try > http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/ussr-1917-1991/

    You should get the answers you are seeking. This is the best advice that can be offered to you in your search for "Nazi" Cossack swords.

    There are now some 'variations on the theme' of new versions of the supposed WW II German Cossack sabers - all of them are fake with the ones I've seen so far. So while I would like to see the one that may be "real" as was stated, I'm not holding my breath. As for their being used (the actual period ones) I don't think that we can question considerable period evidence/photos that the sabers did serve in service to German forces in WW II as seen in the attached photo. So I imagine that it remains to be seen when and if the saber that was described above will be posted for an examination. Best Regards, Fred
