Help identifying a sword . Blucher Sabel

Post by J2shooter » Tue May 05, 2020 9:08 am

Hello everyone. This is my first post on the forum and I'm here because I've happened across a pretty interesting item and it seem like this should be an excellent site to learn more about it.
*I'm not a collector, and I have very little knowledge of this subject matter.
*I became the owner of this item basically because I found it. Literally. It was left in the attic of the home my wife and I purchased in 2014 and I found it when putting Christmas decorations back in the attic a couple months back.

So here goes
It's a Blucher Sabel stamped P.D. Luneschloss Soligen.
The spine is stamped R10 , crown with a w under it and an 05 under the w then what looks like another crown under that.
The handle is stamped 3.A.3.52.
The sheath is also stamped 3.A.3.52.

Nice find.

This link on my Cartridge Casings Guide covers Artillerie Sabres. You might find it useful.

Hmmmm....

I think one of these two prussian artillery units:

- Feldartillerie Regiment "General Feldzeugmeister" N°3 (Brandenburg)
- Fußartillerie Regiment "General Feldzeugmeister" N°3 (Mainz)

3. Batterie, Waffen N° 52.

Would anyone know what an approximate value might be for this item. I would be interested in selling it. As I mentioned in my OP, I'm not a collector and just lucked into owning this piece. I don't plan on keeping it as incredibly cool as it is.

Thanks,
Kevin
