Default !STOLEN WEAPONS ALERT!

Greetings friends,

My house was broken into this past Monday. They looked through the house, trashed the doors, got 2 of my rings, and worse, a chunk of my weaponry collection.

I am missing:

2 gunongs - silver
2 kris with swassa (one with ivory pommel and one with MOP)
1 kris - 1700s and silver
1 barong - ivory and swassa
1 yataghan - Balkan in silver with coral and glass
1 Mandaya sword in silver
1 jambiya - Kurdish in silver
1 jambiya - Turkish with walrus ivory and silver
1 PI dagger - leather and brass scabbard, silver quillons in fern motif
1 PI dagger - Katipunan with sun face and "FG" engraving
1 panabas - double edged with 3 white metal bands and a scabbard

Please look at the pictures and keep on the look out.

My email is battara@hotmail.com if you find any of these.


Thank you.

Jose, I am so sorry to read about your misfortune.
In case they try to sell your blades here in Europe I will probably notice it and contact you directly.

This is every collectors nightmare. Considering what he took he must have some market in mind for these. With vigilance we may well catch the bastard.

Angry STOLEN??PURCHASED FROM ITALIAN SELLER AND NEVER RECEIVED

Please keep your eyes open for this Dharia purchased from an Italian seller and never received. Money not returned and contact ZERO. Suspect that seller has decided to keep both the money and the item!!
Please advise me if you see this for sale.
Thanks
Stu

Please note I have merged the three stolen weapons threads previously "stuck" at the top of the forum.

I do believe it makes sense to stick threads like this so casual readers may see them even years later as one never knows when a lost or stolen item will resurface at auction or similar.

However, let's not have multiple stuck threads. Instead, please use this thread to post any such notices. It will remain stuck.

I dont know if this will help anyone, but I resently read in a Danish net paper that they have started to use 'DNA marking'. They seem to be using this special kind of marking in Sweden and in the UK, and the ones with stickers that they had 'DNA marked' on doors and windows hardly had a break ins, compared to the ones not having the sticker, there the break ins were the same rate as usual.
You contact a security firm delivering this kind of service, and you get/buy a spray, with which you spray your valuables. A contract seems to last about five years. The first year it costs about $100 and the following years about $50.
The 'DNA spray' can only be seen in UW light, and it is unique to the spray bottle used. So if the police find stolen goods at three different addresses, they know that they belong to the same theft. The police then contacts the security firm, and is told who the owner is.
If this is used by the pilice and the customs it could stop a number of thefts.

It breaks my heart to see such an exquisite keris moro stolen from you Battara.
My deepest sympathy and hope you can recover it one day somehow!

Thank you so much folks.

Actually at that time there were a number of homes broken into in the area. Yes they stumbled onto my collection. Fortunately they did not get the most valuable items. Still, I am quite saddened and angry about this loss. Nothing has reappeared so far. I believe they caught the criminal now, but my stuff and others are still missing. At least now we have an alarm (for any would be thieving lurkers out there).

Again thank you folks. You are very kind.........
