Swird identification

Post by Hellfish » Sat Oct 05, 2013 2:21 pm

I got this sword from my Dad, who in turn received it from his own Dad ... he said that it was something his Dad has collected during WW2, but beyond that bit of information he didn't have any idea which country it was from, how old it was or any other information about it.

Anyone offer any insight??

Looks a bit like a Starr 1818.

Not a clue but can I just ask what that thing is ontop of the book in the first picture? It looks like a fossilized poo :S
