Antique 19th Century German Sword & Scabbard Possibly Artillery ?:
Up for offer is an antique German ? military sword of some type, possibly artillery? The sword measures 25.25 inches in total length. The blade alone measures 20 inches long. The sword exhibits some moderate to heavy wear. The blade is very heavy and has been cleaned at some point and has some scratching as seen. Leather scabbard has a weak area and some crazing. Brass scabbard throat has damage and dings also. The handle retains the wire and most of the leather. Neat old sword. Neat side note: This sword was formerly owned by long time world heavyweight boxing champ Larry Holmes and hung on the wall at his home in Easton, Pennsylvania for many years.
