Unknown "Civil War"? Swords.


Recommended Posts

The one with brass handle is a J.A. Henckels Solingen. No other markings on it. I can't find anything on it.

 

The second one looks like a training sword. I believe it is stamped "Wruck" with random lot numbers on it. Any help would be appreciated. I think I am limited on photo posting but can try to upload more if needed.

Thanks in advance.post-212611-0-66028500-1548787240_thumb.jpg

After doing some research, I think what you have regarding the first sword pictured is what's called a German Infantry Hanger Short Sword made by J.A. Henckels Solingen. Could've been manufactured anywhere between 1817-1869. It has a cast one-piece brass hilt with ribbed grooves. Anyway, that's my best guess.

Hallo,

 

the first one is a french Sabre briquet made by the german companie J.A. Henckels "Zwilling" Solingen in a typical frech style frog.

This is the modell from the year IX of the first empire.

I think this is a scare item out of the Nepolon Bonaparte era.

 

 

German blade makers also produce swords and bayonets for other european contries. In the time frame of Napoleon, German states were temporarily occupied or flown by France.

Haenkels may have produced for the French.

Since both of these cutlasses are foreign edged weapons the topic will be locked since they are not US military and have now been identified.

 

If further discussion on these swords is desired they can be posted on our new sister forum at World Militaria Forum.
