militaria item Enfield cutlass bayonet, model 1859, 2nd pattern
- British (German make - American contract)
This was introduced in 1859 for the Royal Navy to supply a need for a cutlass and a bayonet in one weapon for the naval rifle of the era, a .577 Enfield cap and ball weapon. This is an A & E Holler example - ie a Solingen blade. There are no UK ordnance marks, so this is almost certainly an American export item.

This classic Union cavalry sabre, with nearly 100% of its original polish to the blade, is marked 'ROBY//W.SHELMSFORD//MASS' at the forte, Roby being the most desirable of the Union makers (the Ames swords have recently been reproduced in India). On the other side of the forte it is marked 'US 1864 A.G.M.'

militaria item Cavalry trooper's sword by Carl Eickhorn
- Turkish
The guard of this fine sword (marked Carl Eickhorn in Arabic script at the forte) is pierced with the star and crescent, the emblem of the Ottoman Empire. Almanach de Gotha, 1912, gives the total cavalry strengths of the Turkish Army, including Kurdish levies, at about 40,000 horse, indicating this sword's rarity.

militaria item Officer's dagger, model 1843
- Swiss
This is the classic Swiss officer's dirk, which replaced the sword in 1943. I can remember seeing these being worn by Swiss officers in the mid-60s. It is stamped at the forte 'ELSENER//SCHWYZ//VICTORIA', with a number on the reverse '155780'.

militaria item Schmidt-Rubin Pioneer bayonet for 1911 carbine
- Swiss
This is a nice example of the Pioneer carbine bayonet, complete with leather frog and much original finish on the scabbard. The blade is ordnance marked with the Swiss cross and a maker mark: 'HS'. These sawback bayonets would have been carried by Pioneer elements within Swiss infantry regiments, and, in a leather scabbard, by engineer troops.

militaria item Prison Service officer's sword by WKC
- German
This is a marked (WKC) Weyersberg & Kirschbaum production from Solingen, which unusually has a solid bronze hilt, rare for the era, as most of these swords had aluminium hilts (gilt for the prison service and a silver finish for the justice administration officials). In 50 years of trading this is the first bronze hilt I have seen.
