The bundle of quarrels bound with an old cord respresent a true sensation:
The accompaying document of 1858 states that they are six of 10,000, found in a ruined section of the former city arsenal in Bamberg/Franconia. The text further cites that in 1435, 10,000 war quarrels were made in Bamberg and the city archive even records the names of the makers and what they got paid!!!
A detailed image shows the singular condition of some quarrel heads retaining much of their original fire blued or blackened surface.
