Hi Mark, thank you for this great information and attachment's.

The pommel of the sword A2059in KHM in Vienna has great similarities, This sword is dated from the second half of the 14th century.
On the basis of the few remaining specimens and lack of information it is unfortunately not possible to indicate a time span for the pommel with recess with hub and certainly not for a particular geographic area.

quote Oakeshott and certainly apply to my dating's:
any date any expert may assign to a medieval sword can at best be speculative, and at worst is absurd. ROMS p3

very best wishes,

Jasper
