Title Halberd
Nationality German
Period c 1570
Sold

Germanic example with reinforced points to axe blade and rear hook. Iron straps now heavily shortened. Probably remounted in the 17th century (for the 30 Years War?). Octagonal ash shaft copiously studded with brass buttons; extensive traces of old velvet under the buttons. Unusual to have its grounding iron in place.

Collected bayonet this morning, all safe & sound as described. Been looking for one as good as this for years. Thank you.

Just a note to confirm that the [helmet plate centre] has arrived safely. It is a superb piece. Thank you.
