Thanks for the info. It looks like mine has 7 points so that would coincide with a Baron or Freiherr.

A google images search turns up lots of examples but nothing too close.

Thanks for all the info Dirk! I see some of the blades you posted also contain the eyelash marks which we know to be Italian. It seems the marks on my blade are more common than a simple smith mark....

FS: A Pair Of Halberds

Long central spikes (one spike with some damage to the tip). Langets repaired. I think maybe Swiss, around 1600? Hafts that appear old but not original. Selling as a set. Could use some cleaning....

Nice collection! Artillery shells can work for display but careful, they get tippy. Wouldn't want them to fall and poleaxe the cat.

With that mark, you might want to check out this thread, if you havent already. Several Swiss halberds with similar marks. Who knows?

I think this piece may be styrian. Take a look at the one here. The design and "keyholes" are very similar to yours. It has the "HW" mark that is known to be...

I do not know much about crossbows but can see that it could be 19th C just based off materials, patina, and craftmanship.

With that said, please do not put much faith in what ANY auction company...

Heavy Rapier

Does anyone recognize the copper inlaid X's in the blade? Thoughts on age, origin, other similar examples, etc? Measures 118cm. It's heavy but balances very well in the hand.

I hate to say it but I think it looks modern. Holes that appear to be drilled with a machine, the thick and heavy blade, hammer marks look similar to other modern forgings. Just one persons opinion...

It is typical for them to seem "too small". Remember people were smaller back then. There would also be a gorget that would cover some of the upper chest.

I have a reinforcement breast plate that...

My impression is similar to others. The blade old and good. The grip and pommel definitely more modern. The guard, I'm less sure but I lean towards 19th C or later.

If it is filled with lead grape shot leaving some void area, the resulting density might be similar to if it were solid steel. Or maybe it is a cannon ball but a replica just made to look like it is...

This is another member with a blade similar to yours, if I remember correctly. I'll send him a note to take a look.

I think your blade has also been shortened /reprofiled some.

In your last picture, look at the shamrock shaped hole punched in the middle. Obviously made by modern tools.
