This one?
I think it has a symetrical ring on the other side, bu I can't see a thumbring.

I'm surprised no one mentioned falchions yet. The perfect sword for the casual zombie hunter. In the words of one of my friends when i showed him my maciejowski falchion
"I hate falchions"
"why?"
"because they let untrained people kill knights!"
"and thats a bad thing?"
"They're too good!"
"Then why don't you use one"
"..."

If you look very closely at picture #9, which is the same sword, you see a glimpse of something that could be a thumbring.

Michal,

Appreciate your posting. To the majority of us on this side of the "pond" Liviv is an out of the way place and not really well known. I have found some really unusual items in such places.

Thanks,
Dan

I might be wrong, but i think picture 7 and 9 show the typical swedish cavalry sword of the 30yrs war 1618-48.
In fact this type is known in central europe, or at least the german speaking area, as "swedish sword".

Some questions on the hauberk (I can't quite make it out from the pic)

How old is it?

is it an integral coif?

Do I see smaller ring sizes inside the face opening? Almost looks like two seperate pieces..

Just trying to get a better understanding of how an integral coif may have been put together.

I don't remember the note, but it looks like 17th century armour of "pancerni" :

The sabres and scimitars really caught my attention. The arsenal's authorities could have unsheathed those for exhibition purposes, though.
