Help me identify this sabre! Nice Hungarian text on the blade

Recommended Posts

Who can help me to identify this Austro-Hungarian sabre.

It looks like the M1861 Infantry Officers Sabre but it has only one hanging loop on the sheath ipo the normal 2.

Maybe for an NCO?

The blade has a very interesting text in Hungarian which roughly translates into:

"In honor of your promotion from your machine gun comrades"

It was made by Alex Coppel of Solingen (AC and Balance)

Thanks for the help, Erik

Erik : Looks like a senior NCO sabre of the WW1 period . NCOs an kadetts thended to use the sabre in a sort of bayonet frog pending by two straps of the normal belt . and the only ring served to tie the scabbard to the frog .

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
