    Hi Stuka, Thank you for your message and photos. It looks like a nice early heavy brass hilt sword and I tried to enlarge the hilt detail to see the langets but the detail was not good enough. May I ask you to provide close up photos of either side of the hilt please? I find the hilt detail fastenating and would like to see the deails on your sword. Do you have any others in your collection?
    Cheers Michael R
    Hey Michael,
    thanks for your intrest!
    I should have post some hilt details!
    I am not much of a photographer, and find swords in particular difficult to take shots off.
    I defenetly will have more swords coming up in the futur. I always loved them, it was my first TR item I had when I started my first collection as a young boy.

    Hi once again and thank you for the additional photos. I am at a loss regarding the standard of your photographs?? They look pretty damn good to me. As you may have gathered, I like German swords, especialy Lions and even more especialy lions with spread wing eagles. What have I got to trade you for it??? I may have quite a few swords but I have just fallen in love with another one, yours!! Thank you for letting me see it, I realy do appreciate looking at good swords!
    Cheers Michael R

    Here's a real nice rare sword for your perusal. How NOT to treat a sword. Makes you want to cry when you see what some people do to historical items!! Regards Michael R

    Absolutely amazing collection.
    My first interest was swords and daggers but I soon found that I could
    not afford any nice ones so my collecting switched to crosses and awards.

    I would still love to have a nice Lion head sword to display with my imperial EKs.

    Thanks Michael for your appreciation.
    I am very glad you like the sword, I do too! I drove 300 km the day before yesterday,to get it.
    I am glad you showed a relic sword, so I can show mine. When I started collecting again, 5 or 6 years ago, I did so with dug up, relic and denazified items. I did so to get back into the hobby with out having to take to great risks regarding copy's. I still got them.
    They are in a back corner of my display cabinet.

    Hi again Stuka, Thank you for your message and photos. Once again, may I ask for close ups of the hilts of your blades please. I, like you, am happy to buy items in poor condition as I can either keep them as examples or occassionaly use them as spares to complete damaged items in my collection. I am not your average puritanical collector who wants everything in mint condition. I beleive that any item is better than no item. And yes, I have some real rubbish in my collection alongside some of my better bits!!
    Cheers again Michael R

    Hey Michael,
    I very much like your sentence
    any item is better than no item
    , that is exactly how I see things as well.
    At one time I decided to up grade the collection to the so called " better standard", but i did keep a lot of so called "rubbish"!
    Just because it is MY collection and that I am glad with those items.
    I'll try to provide you the close up's asap, problem is I filled the cabinet with greatest part of my collection, because the wife said; that anything that doesn't fit's in to that cabinet needs to go!(lol!!)

    Nice Collection.
    Amazing, that you managed to accumulate so many swords.
    A fantastic room - were it mine, I would sit in the middle of the room with the biggest grin on my face.
    I have a few Blücher swords, but a long way to go, before I'll have that many (if ever).
    Thanks for posting.
