A-4: GERMAN SWEPT HILT RAPIER: circa 1590-1610. Passau wolf in the right fuller. 39 ” blade, 1 1/8” wide. Very old museum quality wire wrapping on the grip. Very nice dark grey patina overall. Nice original untouched condition. V.G. $$4800.00

A-5: GERMAN HUNTING SWORD: Circa 1670. The long 32 “ slender blade is very fine. The left fuller is engraved “ME FECIT” (made by) and the right fuller is engraved “…CHINI” (maker unknown).

A-6 SPANISH 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

SOLDA-7. GERMAN DAGGER CIRCA 1600: 6 inches overall. With this, came a tag with a little vague history: “Given to the late Mr. A.J. Young by a local Joiner about 50 years ago (now approx. 100 years). He said it had been found in a beam in the Tower of the Castle.” Since all the parties involved are now deceased, we have no idea where the castle was. We do know, however, that it was in England. The bone grips have some crude carving. The cross-guard is brass with a little iron stud at each end. The blade is quite pitted. $550.00SOLD
