My new schaschka.

Article about: the overstamp of the Cyrillic "I" concerns me. Not to say it could not have happened in a Soviet factory, but... The fact that there are no additional cartouches on the other side

    Are you in any degree unsure of it's authenticity?

    I've got a good feeling about this sabre, but it's my first, so i would like to be absolutely sure of its authenticity, when i pick it up tomorrow.
    Normally i collect danish bayonets.

    As soon as you get it, I would like to see any, and all markings on the sword, and scabbard. The Chinese make repops. Some are pretty poor, and easy to spot, as fake, but they are getting better, and you really need to look hard.

    The Indians, (India Indians) are also getting into the repop market for edged weapons. Their efforts are very good. So good in fact that the easiest way to tell one of the Indian repops is that it has better steel than an original.

    The Indians efforts are very good because the are not getting into the repop market. It is because the have been cutting their teeth making repop TR edgeweapons for the last 30 years.

    Picked it up to day. It had alot more patina than i expected, but i actually like it that way. Looks like it has seen some action. The pommel is a little loose and it got a lot marks on the etch of the blade...
    No more stamps on the blade...
    At first, here are, some pictures of the stamps. Anyone know what it means ?
    By the way, it looks alot like this one: Kosaken Schaschka M 1881 Russland Sowjetunion - Abroad - Saber / Rapier - Beck Militaria
    The same stamps: 3N3 37r.
