Post by Hammerdown »

Found a sword I thing is a model 1840 musicians sword with a rabbit head and "F P" stamped on the blade. I'm trying to find some info on the makers mark? Thank you for any help.

FP with Rabbits/Hares head denotes a Friedrick Poetter also spelt Pötter (Pronounced Pertter) Solingen Germany made sword.
