offered police NCO
sought one (police NCO) for awhile (4 years) and a contact/seller came up with one. nice, but curious what (in the US) an upper sane price is currently realistic.
not what sits on sites for years, but actually sells.
2K for police officers won't happen on the planet I live on, and assume NCOs rather less in proportion.
While OK with some (again, sane) premium for condition, I am clueless as to a number.
If officers, between collectors, are 800-1200 are NCOs 600-1000 ??
4 years looking for this and any 1 of 4 Army sword patterns getting to be more time invested in looking than it is worth !!
neither the police or Army patterns are like radium in rarity, seems nobody does much with swords (all lower end daggers)

Mark you pay only what you are happy with,thats my way.
Obviously, but not knowing if one is paying twice what general market worth is makes that an unwise decision without having some degree of current data or market.
Almost the same as falling on ones sword without keeping it in check.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

I find NCO swords to be a little scarcer than the officers sword so would expect to see similar prices for the 2, In the UK think £500-£700 depending on condition.
