The two celtic sword experts that i am familiar with are: Nathan Bell, and Jake Powning. i think they would be able to help.
I am a fan of all things celtic, can you be more specific.

Yes Alee go for Nathan Bells collection and see his Manning Imperial Hod Hill Sword...

Also check out this (long) topic here:

I think there is some AD stuff in there also.

On the other hand, by the time of the first century AD, the most Celtic warriors where in roman service fighting as mixed (cavalry and infantry) Auxilia troops. Still using there long Celtic swords but the look of these weapons shifts to a more Roman one. There fore (I think) if you also look for 1 century AD Roman Cavalry Spatha's you will find stuff that is just as much Celtic, as it is Roman...

A good sword will only be sharp, in the hands of a wise manů

I am great fan of everything Celtic BC, including there weapons.
