    Sword 98 (95) Maufactured by the firm of Paul Weyersberg. The Trade mark comprises the name "Paul Weyersberg & Co Solingen" in a vertical oval ribbon encompassing a sword, blade down partially encompassed by a wreath. This sabre is entitled "The Armistice Sword" by both Angolia and Johnston. Angolia shows the sword with an eagle head pommel and made by Eickhorn in Section 16 of his book Swords of Hitlers TR. He states that the sword illustrated in his book is only the second one that he has ever known of. Johnston, on line, shows the lion head version identical to to mine and also by Paul Weyersberg and has a price of over $2500 on it. I am not aware of the origin of the title "Armistice" sword???? Unfortunately, niether author dates their swords and the only armistice that I am aware of is that of 1918? I can not imagine Hitler allowing officers to wear a sword commemorating that event? If you have any information re this sword, I would be most greatfull for your input.

    a. Hilt. Cast in steel with a nickel plated finish. The backstrap is attached directly to the blade tang. The grip is of wood with a plastic cover and a brass wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. Flying eagle on a plain double outlined shield.
    c. Reverse langet. Escutcheon shield on a plain double outlined shield.
    d. Pommel. Lion head with red glass eyes (Removed).
    e. Blade. Plated steel with single full size fullers and foiliage etchings.
    f. Scabbard. Standard nickel plated steel scabbard with single ring suspension fitting and a rectangular suspension loop to rear.
    g. Rarety. Very rare.

    Sword 99 (94) Maufactured by the firm of Weyersberg & Co. There is no trade mark however, the wording "Weyersberg & Co - Solingen" is etched into the blade spine immediately below the langets. One author dates a very similar sword by the firm of Eickhorn at circa 1933 and refers to it as a "Reichswehr Artillery Officer's Sword". Although I am happy that the sword is original, the quality is inferior to any other Weyersberg sword that I have encountered. If this is a Reichswehr sword, and I believe that it probably is, then that may account for both the lack of quality and the fact that there are traces of black paint in the recesses of the hilt. The German Army, during the period 1921 to 1933, under the Weimar Republic was very poorly funded and equiped. This was due to the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles, reperations for WWI and the great depression. Perhaps, due to the lack of funds, swords were reduced to a quality that both the Imperial and TR Army's would have found less than satisfactory, ergo the quality of this poor sword? If you have an oppinion on this sword or subject, please let me know.

    a. Hilt. Cast in brass. The backstrap is attached directly to the tang. The grip is of wood and devoid of both cover and grip wrap. There is no evidence visible of either having been attached to the grip. The knuckle bow has been voided possibly to save brass and the overall finish is poor.
    b. Obverse Langet. Crossed cannon superimposed on a foliage wreath all on an outlined shield.
    c. Reverse langet. WKC style knight's helmet with mantle surmounting a stylised shield all on an outer outlined shield.
    d. Pommel. Lion head head small red stone eyes.
    e. Blade. Plain plated steel with single full size fullers.
    f. Scabbard. standard pattern black steel scabbard with single ring suspension fitting and a rectangular suspension loop to rear.
    g. Rarety. Quite rare (if original).

    Sword 101 (59) This sword is a Model M1889 Prussian Infantry Officers sword by Clemen & Jung. The trade mark comprises a coronet or crown surmounting a shield on which is an upper case "Z" flanked on each side by a dot.. Note, the "Z" can be either angled as illustrated or as typed as is the case on this sword. There are two basic patterns of this sword, fixed and folding guard. The fixed guard has three vertical guard bars covering the knuckles whilst the folding guard type only employs two. However, there are likely to be variations. Additionally, higher quality and presentation swords tend to include far more hilt decoration. The Imperial Prussian Royal Cypher is positioned centrally on the grip.

    a. Hilt. Cast in gilded brass, the hilt comprises seven parts,
    (1) Oval tang nut.
    (2) Pommel cap.
    (3) Knuckle bow and cross guard. On the fixed guard model, this item includes the cartouche.
    (4) Cartouche. Not a separate item on the fixed guard sword.
    (5) Furrule
    (6) Finger support. This is usually an optional item so may/may not be present. In this case not present.
    (7) Grip assembly. This includes the wooden former, cover and wire wrap. In this case plastic with a brass wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. None.
    c. Reverse langet. None.
    d. Pommel. Plain oval tang nut and cap assembly.
    e. Blade. Plain, plated with double full size fullers. The blade has been sharpened for field service.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel scabbard with a single ring suspension fitting and loop to the reverse side of the scabbard.
    g. Rarety. Common.
