here's a better shot of the marking that i made a few minutes ago:
the blade is also marked closer to the tip
can you see what it is yet?
fairly good replica of a high ranking autro-hungarian hussar sabre, and a LOT cheaper than the original. just thought i'd show that just because it's marked doesn't mean it's not a copy or a blade marked to make it look classier. the marks are pretty clear examples tho, supposedly copied from the original in a museum.
made in germany (solingen) tho this year, instead of the mid-18th c., the marks are laser cut
