  4. Hi, I mostly collect European militaria and a person who replied to my post in a European forum thought these epaulettes might be that of a mid 1800s American colonel. Your studied thoughts please. Thanks

    French mid 1800s epaulettes?

    I am sorry that I did not see your replies til tonight. Here are closeups of the eagles, as you mentioned and also a separate metal eagle I found elsewhere whose general identify I do not know of. the epaulettes and metal eagle are unrelated but I still would be interested in knowing about each. Thanks, David I had three images and it is only allowing me to send one photo attachment with this for some reason and I have resized the other two twice. The metal eagle I referred to is a separate item from the epaulette conversation or piece.

  10. Hi, I know this is Austro Hungarian and made by sword-maker Blazincic & Sohne, if Vienna. Its scabbard is partitioned like navy presentation swords with the leather exterior and escutcheons at the three key places. It is filigreed, with the coat of arms, but no poseidon or neptune or anchors. Thanks. Wondering any information including range of date of manufacture.It has the Franz Joseph monogram on the scabbard and a single fixed ring.
  11. Kindly tell me if these epaulettes are Italian, French, or another nation? I am thinking they were from the mid 1800s. Thanks in advance.. (also anything else known about them).. Please note the form and placement of hte eagles...

  13. I bought a Cavalry sword the other day, lions head "grosser" model and I am intrigued by the number set on the langet. Please tell me if I am on the mark or not... Prussian imperial deluxe pattern Lions head “Grosser/larger” (also known as “fighting weight”) artillery sword (shown left for comparison with standard model) and scabbard made sometime between 1912 and 1914. Pantherhead quillon. Fishskin grip covering. Triple wrap grip wire. Etched and nickeled blade excellent condition. Circa 1900. Deeply gilt lion head pommel with red ruby eyes. Scabbard is blued steel with 2 brass scabbard bands. Engraved, large curved blade; sharkskin grip; elaborate scrolling on knuckle quill. It has a shield hallmark and Geschultze Muster. Helmeted Athena head on outside backstrap of handle. Oakleaves on solid wide knucklebow. And on reverse langet, the numbers 6/.58 then a small 3. That might have meant 6th Corps artillery, 58th Regiment, 3rd weapon. The obverse langet is crossed cannons. Made by Clemen & Jung. Maybe issued to an officer in an Upper Silesian military unit. A somewhat similar model featured on pages 83, 86, 88 and 89 of the book, “Imperial German Edged Weaponry” I bought a ARTILLERY (earlier typo) sword the other day, lions head "grosser" model and I am intrigued by the number set on the langet.
