There are several informative threads on this forum.  Just enter "MAMELUKE" in the search box, select "forums" and click on the arrow and you're in business.

 

Hope this helps, Art

Not sure exactly what the question is.  Are you asking whether the sword is authentic?  If so, the answer is yes.  It is a Viet Nam-era wxample sold by the Hilborn Hamberger company of New Jersey and was probably made by the Solingen, Germany company WKC.

Thanks for the info.  Don't know anything about these.  Looked like the USMC engraving was a little sloppy
