    Default Bavarian sword or repro?

    I just picked this sword up at a farm auction last night for $50 USD.
    I bought it with in mind that it was a reproduction or prop. But after looking it over some more this morning I am wondering maybe it is good and I just can't find much of anything on Bavarian swords.
    The scabboard is leather with brass. I am not sure what material the handle is made of?
    Wasn't sure on the sword knot either? Can't tell if it is an add on or goes with it?
    Just though I would toss it out to you guys to see what you think..
    Thanks

    Appears to be a Bavarian Court Sword...a better look at the coat of arms on the clam shell would be helpful...but it appears original...

    Thanks Glenn. I will take some close up pics when I get home tonight.
    Does anyone know the rough age on this?
    So I am thinking $50 was a pretty good deal on it then?

    Good looking blade.

    Looks nice. I would guess purely by the style for it to be late 1800s, but I'm not sure.

    I'm more inclined to believe that this is a WWI (1914-18) era sword...I look forward to the other photos and more opinions from our experienced blade collectors...this could get educational...!
    cheers, Glenn

    I sure hope so!
    At least it didn't come with a story that it belonged to a Bavarian Corporal. LOL
    A guess the blind rat find the cheese every now and then.
    Looking forward to more info. Thanks.

    The knight's head trademark was that of W. R. Kirschbaum & Cie - they merged in 1883 with Weyersberg to form Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie., so logically it should pre-date the merger.

    The other name - Lorenz Stanko will be the retailer or distributor.

    The sword is some of Court or State officials pattern - can't be any more precise than that I'm afraid.

    In Treue Fest - the Bavarian State motto.
