    First of all its Forestry instead of Forserty

    Well to be honest, having lost all of its original gilding its doesnt look that great, its an aluminium based hilt and should be gilded.
    Besides that im missing the alcoso etches on the blade.
    Not one for my collection.

    It is very pitted on fittings. I am not a fan of it for my collection but it Is my opinion. Ger here is someone I would wait to opine on this piece. He has very good knowledge in the area of Forestry and Hunting Cutlasses.

    Thanks Gerrit, there is a typo in the title of the post and I am writing through google translator, so not all words can be understood (unfortunately)

    the hilt and the device of the scabbard are metallic, magnetized. there is a mark on the blade. the seller says that there was etching but had to be removed to remove corrosion from the blade

    This model is a standard Hirschfänger, not a Deluxe version, its not rare and in this condition not very collectible.
    We see this model by Alcoso mostly in gilded brass for the earlier ones (up to 1935) from 1936 and up a lot of gilded aluminium and even gilded steel was used.
    All logo's by Alcoso are stamped, so no etched ones before 1945.

    Looking at this one, it looks stamped, but its blade having been polished so hard to remove corrosion removing the etch, and the hilt and fitting lost their gilt.

    This one has no collectible value, i advice to look for a better one.

    A classic example of a heavily corroded blade where someone has gone overboard with acid and buff, clean and polish, even deciding to remove all trace of gilt to give an impression of uniformity. The fact the etching is completely gone shows how extensive the sanding, acid and polish must have been. As always when appraising a blade, compare it with photos of other originals and catalogue diagrams to reveal changes from standard. This forum archive is a good place to start.
