Well Jean-Luc, i see by the absence of opinions that these two beauties are not interesting for collectors. But don't be sad, just send them over to Portugal ;) .

But first, I must inspect them for flaws before Fernando gets them- ;)

Very nice pieces, but as I have novice knowledge here, not much to add. Excellent finds, Jean-Luc!

These would be classified as main-gauche, correct? Used in two hand fighting with the accompanying rapier?
