“Presented for our customers this week is a beautiful unworn Field Marshal series Eickhorn sword. The Field Marshal series continues to be our best selling military swords with many of our customers attempting to complete the “set” and acquire an example of each specimen in the series. . Although the Eickhorn tag has been damaged, trying to purchase a minty tag for under $1,500.00 is almost impossible in today’s extremely competitive collectors’ market. A superbly conditioned example and for sure the high-light of any sword collection.”
