Default Sponsorship wanted for Schwarzburger Zeughaus

The Schwarzenburger Zeughaus (Schwarzenburg Armoury) in Thuringia, Germany is seeking for sponsorships for the conservation and restauration of objects from their valuable collection. The following pdf is showing som very intersting pieces.

beautiful weapons, however, the specified restoration costs seem to me very high. Some are even higher than the value of the restored weapon!
A professional restoration is possible for a fraction of the price.

minor niggles;
inv 1250 1251, this pair of Wheelock pistols has been unfortunately over-cleaned and over-polished after the restauration.
inv 310 the Hungarian saber 17th c is a north African nimcha 19thC.
inv 1306 JJ Behr, this pair comes from Maasticht or Liege
inv 1338 1339 looks at first sight a typical Dutch pair, probably Utrecht.

best,
