Its an artillery presentation sword.

Langet has crossed cannons.

The blade is decorated with foral and military stuff.

The blade is also marked as "s/l" from one officer to another. !. Posensches Feld - Artillerie - Regiment Nr 20 with 1896 date.

I wonder....

if the red eyes were damaged or fell out somewhere along time's dusty travels... and SOMEBODY put in blue ones who had no idea what was normal for German swords?

I can't tell if the eyelids look like the stones have been repaired after manufacture, from the scan.

Exactly, Rick! I think that it is MOST LIKELY a period performed item.

I think that it is an interesting piece and would love to see the rest of it.

After all, I would assume that "gems" that size are not a standard. They seem as if they were made for the sword as they fit in very nicely.
