hey Karl,

I gather you are referring to Cromwell's Drogheda mortuary. Armour Class does the best reproduction of the original. I have the Hanwei , they did a very nice job,only the basket is more of a bronze hue than black. The original was black japanned / or lacquered with painted / gold leaf / inlay markings.

the original




my Hanwei Cromwell - center






Armour Class' version

cheers,

Bill










I also have photos of Cromwell's other swords from my research visit to the Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon a couple years back.

My scanner is not the best, but here is the photo from Harvey J.S. Withers' The Illustrated Encyclopedia of words & Sabers. I hope it is of interest.

There's a pic on Flickr of the sword:

Attached are pics from the following book:

Treasures from the Tower of London: Arms and Armour by A.V.B. Norman

I had to reduce their size and quality to post them.
