Default 2 ethiopian swords

Hello guys how are you ?
I hope covid 19 has made a bow around you so far !!
I decided to sell 2 of my swords. they no longer fit in my collection.
The first sword is equipped with an english blade. the blade has a nice stamp and nice typical ethiopian decorations in the grooves of the blade. the handle is a bit bumped but it is intact and not loose. it is made of horn (i think it is rhino) at the end of these handle was an old silver maria theresia thaler from austria riveted.
the blade width is 40 mm and the length of the sword is 90 cm.
the price would be 600 + shipping.

the 2 sword is kept a bit simpler. the blade is stamped with the crescent marks on both sides.
that should probably be on a European one
Point out (German) blade. but i think it is a local production because the blade is relatively heavy and not of the quality that it would be it it is was made in solingen.
the handle is also from the same kind of horn. the as the end of these handle was an silver coun from italian used.
the length over all is 93 cm.
the price for these sword is 520 + shipping
if you need some more informations about these swords so please let me know it.
if some one decid to sell these swords together so is the shipping free.
please proff if it is possible to send these swords in your country. maybe there are problems because the CITES rules.
i wish all members and guests from these forum good luck and an nice Eastern!!
