Some beauties there Mike, thanks for showing them
Hi Douglas, Thank you!!!!!
Items 51 and 54 are basically the same sword but by different manufacturers. The only real variation is in the size of the langets and the wire grip wraps. Item 59 is a standard Model 89 Infantry Officer sword by Clemen and Jung. Item 60 is a minor variation on the Standard 89 and manufactured by WKC. Probably a slightly higher quality with a shgreen grip wrap and devoid of Imperial Royal Cypher. There is no evidence of a cypher ergo it is as was when purchased. Additionally, it has a silver rather than a black scabbard. If there is a significance to the variations between 59 and 60, then I am not aware of what they are. Do you know??
By Gum Scout, You were quick off the mark this morning!!!! I hadn't even finished the description. Thank you for your comment.
Regards Michael R
