    Keep in mind, the prices you see on websites do not usually (almost never) represent the actual "sold" prices since there is typically some behind the scenes negotiation involved with many purchases. That said, the $5,000 range seems more realistic, but without photos there is no real way to say. As I'm sure you're well aware Sarge, condition has a huge impact on value - more specifically the blade's condition when referring to most edged weapons.

    Gottleib stuff are always over price and you are never sure if you are getting the real deal or higher quality fake.

    I have seen authentic ones available online and at shows for $5000 and up depending on condition. A proper officer's portepee will add around $1500. I opted for the NCO sword but hope to get an officer's one day.
