1916 Artillery Sword

Article about: Glad I could help! I also have a wartime wood gripped 1856nA ( I mistakenly typed 1854 instead of 1856) made by F.W. Holler and an older leather gripped version by Kaiser. http://www.warreli

    Default 1916 Artillery Sword

    Howdy, I've had this one for some time, an old ebay purchase. A Wurttemberg 1916 - very clean blade

    A heavy bladed brute, for sure, and definitely not a parade sword! In great condition! Nice find!

    Very nice 1856nA Prussian artillery sabre. I don't know if Wurttemberg had any cavalry, but without being marked on the cross guard to a Wurttemberg unit, I would say the crown over W over 16 is a Prussian acceptance stamp. If you use a good light and look behind the langet, the part that hangs down from the base of the crossguard and covers the base of the blade, you can see who the maker is.

    Again great sword,

    That sword was made to be used.
    I like it.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    Thanks guys. Jim P appreciate the information. Way back I looked up blade markings and some how concluded Wurttemberg . I'll try and get the maker mark based on your suggestion
