WW1 Capture Items
Here is a rare Prussian Curassier Sword with double folding guards, front & back, with the correct hanger. The near mint blade has a double blood gutter and has the early double Carl Eickhorn trademark. The brass cross guard folds up on both the front and rear of the sword. The wrapped handle is perfect and the leather finger loop is present. A rare sword and well under the money for a specimen in this condition. Just a little paint loss to a few spots on the scabbard.
Here is a beautiful Pre-WW1 Infantry Officer's Saber from the German State of Baden. Quill back Eisenhauer blade by WKC. Some peppering to the blade, but still very attractive. It has the original hanger and knot in Baden colors and the knot has a metal "3" on the bottom. A very scarce sword in nice condition.
