    Not a very nice one, but original to me.
    But wait for better opinons.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!

    I'm no expert as I only have one myself, but it does look original, the eagles etc.. can look crude as these where not scrutinized heavily as daggers etc by RZM, here's my Eickhorn as an example

    A legitimate period item IMO, it looks to me like it's a later period saber by Coppel made of zinc, that could be a die casting. With die cast parts very often having more precise details as manufactured than sand cast examples. Best Regards, Fred

    looks ok to me.

    Very late in the period. Has the AWS trade mark of the former Alexander Coppel & Sohn firm, in use after ownership of that business was "Aryanised". This AWS trade mark is not seen too often, imo.

    Looks ok to me, not the classic early Alcoso Eagle, but then again as said, it was after the deportation of Coppel and the quality dropped
    The eagke aint looking that bad and the wartime alu fits the late AWS logo.
    Here another quite similar but cheaper one also aws logo

    I can only echo what the others said. These swords are one of the exceptions to the rule where crude can sometimes be a sign of originality.
