Sad to see these kinds of things still happening. Was it a professional auction company or just an eBay style auction?

I've tried using Google image search, but it doesn't return a lot of results. My guess is that there just aren't enough people posting them.

Thank you for the feedback Jim. It is as you say an unusual configuration, especially the orientation of the wolf and that pannel in between the fullers.

I think thereíd be a serious risk of loosing your fingers if you tried to use those slots to catch an opponents blade. Also, using them to break the blade? Highly unlikely.

Thank you Werecow, its a possibility. However, the dates don't match the blade (not conclusive I know), and there are three stamps, not four.

Also, the E is part of a larger stamp which I suspect...

Yes, thank you. However, those images are all from nice flat surfaces….. Difficult to match them with the ones on such a narrow surface as annelets.

Just had another look; the crowned V could be a...

Thank you for the information Midelburgo, so you suspect it was a Spanish infantry officers sword, and not belonging to a civilian?
