WS-4. TURKISH “KILIG”: Circa 1800. The 30 inch blade is of the highest quality. Maker’s cartouche on the left side of the blade. Arabic script on the right side. The long panel is indecipherable. The small panel reads “GLORY TO GOD”. The fullers on the blade are beautifully formed. A little light pitting at the tip. All the mounts except the drag on the scabbard which was replaced at some time during its working life are Hallmarked Silver. Each piece has its own stamp. The scabbard is tight on the blade and requires some effort to put in and take out. This is due to the wood liner having shrunk a little. Overall this is an exceptional piece. Note one of the Silver rings on the pommel is missing. TIRRI Pg.130. $1650.00

WS-16. EUROPEAN RAPIER BLADE MADE FOR NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS AS A SPEAR POINT: We acquired this with a collection of North American Indian artifacts. With this piece was a Brown Bess bayonet made for the Hudson Bay Co. in the same fashion as this. Note the unusually long tang. These were inserted into the end of a long shaft. Our guess is that this was a French sword blade, altered to its present form. 24 inches overall. 6 inch tang. Ref> Historical Arms New Series No. 2.

Iron Crusader style hilt with clamshell guard and wire-wrapped grip. A classic example of an early German Hunting Sword. $2800.00

WS-32: SPANISH CAVALRY SWORD: Circa 1770-1780. 36” plain blade, 1 1/2” wide of classic Spanish style for military swords. Dark patina overall. Traditional style hilt and copper wire grip. The crossguard bears the maker’s stamp of a Crown over “Z” and a Crown over an “E”. This is probably Eusebio de Zuloggo of Madrid. An example virtually identical is illustrated on Plate 150 of “Spanish Military Weapons in Colonial America 1700-1821”. A very fine example. $2,800.00

WS-33 SPANISH CONQUISTADOR CUP HILT RAPIER: Circa 1650-1700. Long Flamberge blade 38”, 7/8” wide. “IN SOLINGEN” is engraved in each fuller, with an “S” at the end of each fuller. The “S” is another Solingen mark. The cup hilt is of particular interest as the design on the outward half of the cup is chiseled with an INCA / AZTEC influence. This design unquestionably has the sword connected to the New World (the Americas). The voided areas along the edge and upper portion of the guard are very nicely done. The entire hilt style is of a classic Spanish style and in exceptional condition. This is an extremely rare and important piece. $7,500.00
