German Dagger - Circa.1626 From The Thirty Years' War, Post Medieval, No Sword For Sale

German Dagger - Circa.1626   From The Thirty Years' War, Post Medieval, No Sword

A RARE GERMAN DAGGER FROM THE BATTLE OF DESSAU BRIDGE, OCCURRING ON APRIL 25, 1626. IT IS RARE DUE TO THE FACT THAT VERY FEW 400YEAR-OLD WEAPONS HAVE THE PROVENANCE OF NOT ONLY THE WAR IT WAS USED IN, BUT ALSO THE SPECIFIC BATTLE. A FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE WAS IN A SMALL GROUP THAT DETECTED IT. SINCE THE ONLY BATTLE THAT OCCURRED ON THE ELBE NEAR DESSAU WAS THAT BATTLE AND ALSO SINCE AN EXPERT DATED THE DAGGER TO THAT PERIOD, IT IS ALMOST CERTAINLY FROM THE BATTLE OF DESSAU BRIDGE.

THE BATTLE OF DESSAU BRIDGE WAS A SIGNIFICANT BATTLE IN THE THIRTY YEARS' WAR BETWEEN DANISH PROTESTANTS AND THE IMPERIAL GERMAN CATHOLIC FORCES ON THE ELBE RIVER, OUTSIDE OF DESSAU, GERMANY IN 1626. THE IMPERIAL GERMAN FORCES OF ALBRECHT VON WALLENSTEIN HANDILY DEFEATED THE PROTESTANT FORCES OF ERNST VON MANSFIELD. ALMOST 6,000 SOLDIERS WERE KILLED IN THIS ONE DAY BATTLE !!!!

THE DAGGER IS ALL ORIGINAL, KEEPING THE WOODEN GRIP WITH THE SMALL TACKS. WOOD GRIPHAS A SMALL CHUNK MISSINGON ONE SIDE (see last pic), BUT EXPECTED FOR THE AGE. WOOD IS ALSO SPLIT ON BOTH SIDES, SHOWING THATTHE GRIPWAS MADE IN TWO HALVES. BLADE IS THIN, BUT VERY STABLE AND HAS A NICE PATINA. A RAISED MIDDLE GROOVE EXTENDS THE LENGTH OF THE BLADE. VERY NICE OVERALL. THE IRON GUARD CAP, BETWEEN THE BLADE AND THE WOODGRIP, HAS PITTING. THE POMMEL LOOKS TO BE BRASS AND COULD BE A LATER ADDITION, ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE IT NOT TO BE. TOTAL LENGTH IS 11" OR 280 mm AND THE BLADE LENGTH IS 6" OR 150 mm. DAGGER HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED.

A GREAT DAGGER THAT WAS PROBABLY CONCEALED THAT DAY TO BE BROUGHT OUT AS A VICIOUS SECONDARY WEAPON. IT IS VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS DAGGER DID NOT SPILL BLOOD THAT DAY !!! A FANTASTIC PIECE TO ENHANCE ANY MEDIEVAL / ARMS & ARMOUR OFFERRED AT AN EXTREMELY LOW STARTING PRICE WITH AND..........FREE SHIPPING !!! PAYPAL ONLY FOR NON-U.S. buyers. AUTHENTICITY FULLY GUARANTEED !!!! A STATEMENT OF AUTHENTICITY WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE WINNER.

SOME ADVICE (AGAIN) : PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM " NO RETURN" ITEMS - THERE IS A REASON THE SELLER WON'T STAND BEHIND HIS ITEM...........
