    Default Naval Officer Sword

    Hi All,
    I am interested in this Navy Officer sword, Imperial era, Gilt is strong, only issue is one missing eye and piece of grip plate is broke(ivory or simulated not sure), the sword is double etched and named twice, once on the blade and once on the backgaurd, the name is Friedrich, on the blade it says OEY or HEY s/1. friedrich. does anyone know the meaning? I found a SMS Friedrich in the Imperial Navy, but I beleive its the owners last name and not the ships name, I just cant figure out the part before it, also do you think its a good deal if the price is the upper 3 digit range, I am not sure on value for this style.
    Thank you for your time and help.

    For what it's worth, it looks to be a real ivory handle to me.

    It was a beautiful sword-typical of the amazing workmanship of the Imperial sword houses of the day. Unfortunately, for me, the broken grip would significantly reduce it's desirability and value.

    I think these swords are beautiful, yes the price would have to be low to overlook the flaws but I'm a sucker for etchings and monograms!

    I agree that the grip reduces the value but if you can get it
    for the right price it would display very nicely.

    Ralph all imperial sword and dagger grips are made of Ivory

    Max i think its a beautiful named sword, and of course Friedrich is the owners name, should be researchable, you did very well, these are expensive and sought after swords.

    The "?ey s/l Friedrich" indicates the sword was a gift to Friedrich from his friend ?ey (sein leben).

    I'm no good reading German script so you will need to figure out the first name - Hey Gey ???
