You are right, but unfortunately most museums dont show their weapons any more, or only very few of them.
Very few of the Moser Collection weapons are shown, but there are a few.
I have seen the reserves, and you could use a long time there, had it not been for the curator following you around.

Very nice to hear from you Jeff:-).
Attached are two katars, on from A Passion for Indian Arms pp. 111-112, possible Deccan 18th to early 19th century - according to the catalogue, although I thing it is older with a never decoration.
The other one is South Indian 17th century.
