    Description

    Imperial German Artillery Saber. This stirrup-hilted sword was based on the English Light Cavalry troopers sword used from 1796 to 1820. It was an extremely effective cutting saber, so popular in fact, that the Prussians adopted this pattern after the Napoleonic Wars. This example is circa 1910. The bright curved, single-edged blade measures 30", with an overall measurement of 35". The blade is 1.25" wide at the hilt. A broad fuller runs from the ricasso to within 4" of the point. The blade displays a rudimentary false edge. A broad fuller runs from the ricasso to within about 4" of the point. The blade is maker marked P.D. Luneschloss, Solingen and the spine is marked with an Imperial crown and "W 10". The saber has an all steel hilt with a composition grip. The steel scabbard has a single fixed suspension ring and heavy drag. The throat of the scabbard is regimentally marked "43.A.6.55". This is a fine example of this pattern.

    Estimate: $600 - $800.

    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.
