    Description

    Group Of Six Large Knives Being Primarily 20th Century Reproductions of Earlier Style Knives. Group includes the following: 19th century Moro or Mexican short sword with iron mounted hilt with S shaped guard, wooden grip with iron ferrules, 20" flat blade and nicely decorated original brown leather scabbard. Overall fine untouched condition.; Two Confederate D-guard style knives, while giving the appearance of being old we believe to be 20th century reproductions both bearing spurious maker's signatures on the blades. One "T. S. Leech & Co." and the other "O. S. Haynes / Macon". Both in very good condition and clearly old but in our opinion definitely not period.; a knife with clipped point blade stamped in large letters "C. S. A." on one side of the ricasso and "T G & CO / NO" on the other. S shaped iron guard, wooden grip with iron ferrules at top and bottom and brass pommel cap meant to look like a Potts bayonet. Leather sheath also stamped "C. S. A. with brass tip with ring on the bottom. Sheath and knife both in very good condition; a knife with one piece stag/antler grip with oval iron cross guard and huge spearpoint blade which exhibits what we believe is chemically induced pitting; a knife that actually appears to be original 19th century with huge blade with slightly clipped point and false edge with one piece grip with iron ferrules at top and bottom. A fascinating group if only for the ingenuity and imagination of the makers of these pieces.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
