The sword belonging to El Gran Capitan is indeed a "the luxe" piece and kept in an fantastic good condition. On the contrary, the sword atributed ( but not assured ) to Pedro Alcaro Cabral, Brazil discoverer, is well excavated, broken in two halves, and with a missing tip. This is the best achieveable picture, from the Silvas auction catalogue, together with an overall silhouete,from the Daehnhardt book.
