    Hi Al, Nick took the words out of my mouth.

    I presume these are mostly Regimental issue stamps?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, yes they are regimental issue marking on the crossguard and scabbard i believe these interpret to read i.e. 11 . R . 1 . 238 = 1st company 11th infantry regiment weapon no. 238 . The scabbard has been re issued a few times as you can see and this reads as follows i.e. 154 . R . 11 . 136 = 11th company 154th regiment weapon no. 136 . The stamp on the blade spine which is crowned "W" over 75 is for the Prussian Kaiser Wilhelm 11 and the 75 for 1875 year of manufacture . The crowned gothic letters are inspection stamps

    cheers al
