I have acquired this sword and know nothing about it. It weighs a little over five (5) pounds and is about four (4) foot in length. I'm getting people who are reading my thread but aren't replying. That is fine. Can anyone point me in another direction? I have no idea where even to start. Please someone help. I don't even know where to post this thread!
The last photo almost seems to be from another sword though; the top two images don't appear to reconcile with the last image. The langets appear to be different and the patina look distinct from each other (I've put red circles around the areas to which I refer).
Perhaps this is just a case of the resolution of the photos being low and creating this effect - could you provide some clearer photos?
