    Wittmann Militaria #35419 Unmarked Krebs Leopard Head Army Sword

    First, is it legit?

    Second, is it worth 800$

    I am looking to spend max 1000$ on a lion/leopard head sword, I like the ones from Wittmann. As a n00b I am seeking help from you vets to help me find a good deal. I like the wood handle opposed to the faded shiny gold

    Thanks, you guys are awesome.

    I see. Well any direction to a good deal on a good sword in good shape would be appreciated. How much do you think this sword is actually worth?

    Well the first site you 'like' is snyders treasure. Although I am not from the US and I know nothing about this character what I will tell you is nobody will ever encourage you to buy from him.

    Big W is ok, but his email answering has gone rapidly south in the last year for some reason..... I would say spending allot of time on the new SA book but I don't know.

    About the sword (which you asked), I like it. Nice to see a good layer of original paint on the scabbard. However If I was you, Id look into a maker marked one it will hold value better and will be easier to sell when you come to sell it. I know he say's he thinks its a krebbs but its only a hunch and will mean nothing come sale day - trust me!

    The alcoso one on there is probably better but a bit more. However that extra 100 bucks (ive always wanted to say bucks like in the movies but never get the chance ) is going a long way. A) you are getting a quality maker mark and B) you have a 33" blade which I will say long swords are always that much more desirable!

    Good luck with your decision, matty

    Firstly - it should be noted, that the Leopard Head sabre much rarer than Lion Head sabre, and for that fact - more expensive.
    These sabre looks untouched, nothing on it is not broken, maybe only miss some "gold" finish, but it simply she is good taste.
    I also think that this whole topic, is useless without sabre photos.

    Agreed Matty, I am leaning twords the Alcoso

    Thanks guys

    There is no photos of the maker mark but the item info indicates " The reverse ricasso is stamped with the scales trademark having the firm's initials, "ACS" interspersed. Above the scales is the firm's name in block letters, "ALCOSO" and below, the location city of "SOLINGEN"."

    I will ask for a maker mark photo before buying. What does everyone think of this one?
