    Sword 176 (191) This sword is something of an enigma to me!! It is a standard pattern Luftwaffe Flyers sword, however. Maufactured by the firm of Alexander Coppel Solingen, the Trade Mark comprises a set of scales incorporating the initials ""ACS" and surmounting the name "Solingen".

    a. Hilt. Cast in alloy, possibly brass with convex faces to the obverse and reverse, the pommel bears a "sundial" pattern swastica and is screwed directly onto the blade tang. The grip is of wood with a blue leather cover and adouble silver alloy wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. None. Quillon comprises a pair of down swept wings with a miniature version of the pommel at the confluence of the wing roots forming the quillon block.
    c. Reverse langet. As per b. above.
    e. Blade. Plain plated steel with single short central fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Blue leather covered steel with steel chape and locket. Suspension is by means of a pair of horizontaly aligned rings attached to the locket and attached to which should be a leather suspender with upper clip loop.
    g. Rarety. Quite rare?

    This sword is peculiar in that the hilt metal work is non magnetic and appears to be plated but without evidence of any gold colouring etc. The blade is well shaped with wear and appears original. The trade mark appear real. The scabbard is well made however the steel fittings are painted black and very well worn. The leather covering appears to be damp damaged and shrunken. I am hoping that someone with more knowledge than I can come up with some plausable logic for the origin of this item. Although I have handled and even owned repro Luft swords, I have not seen one that resembles this item. What do you think? Why for instance, if you are trying to pass a banger, would you paint the fittings black? Etc etc etc? Signed Confused of Peterborough.

    Sword 177 (111) The maufacturer of this high quality sword is not known as there are no markings on the blade.

    a. Hilt. Cast in brass. The backstrap is attached directly to the blade tang. The grip is of wood with a shagreen cover and a brass wire wrap.
    b. Obverse Langet. A floral wreath intertwined with crossed swords and crossed lances. Whilst accepting that the usual generic insignia on German swords carried by cavalry is a pair of crossed sabres, when lances are also incorporated with the sabres, it is my belief that the sword belonged to a member of a lancer or ulan regiment??
    c. Reverse langet. Full mantle encopassing a vertical oval escutcheon.
    d. Pommel. Lion head with red glass eyes.
    e. Blade. Plain, plated steel with single full size fullers.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel scabbard with single ring suspension fitting and rectangular suspension loop to rear.
    g. Rarety. Quite scarce.

    Sword 181 (109) This is a Model M1889 Prussian Infantry Officers sword but unfortunaly, the maufactured of this sword is not known as there is neither a trade mark nor name on the blade. 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 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 it is 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.
    f. Scabbard. Standard black steel scabbard with a single ring suspension fitting and loop to the reverse side of the scabbard.
    g. Rarety. Common.
