It does have the Swedish Coat of Arms on it , great looking sword
Excellent engraving and blade finish. The 3 crowns definitely make it Swedish. Is a first for me-I've never run into one like it before either. Very nice, in any case!

I can't help authenticate the sword but is is a beautiful sword and it shows quality workmanship i would be proud to have in my collection
Nice Sword Ivan..quite beautiful. It has that German Craft about it which looks like many of the Lion Had swords we see on this forum. Maybe this Swiss maker had ties with its Solingen neighbors? Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Yes it's Swedish, and "Fäderneslandet" means Fatherland but I dont see what the other text says from that picture.
I found this auction site and there is a couple of swords which is quite like yours but I'm not sure if there is one like you have.
The most similar ones is from the middle and down.
