My Dad left me some sort of spanish weapon, least that's what he always said it was, he got it from a family member who lived in san geromino new mexico, I just wanted to find out if it's real or if my Dad just believed his family, I've never had it appraised cause I don't know what it is, can anyone help, I don't want to sell it, i just want to know if it's real before i spend that kind of mone. My Dad passed away in 2006. Sorry about other posts, couldn't figure out picture size

The basic form is that of a late 16th century halberd, but the state of the piece suggests to me ( a definite non-expert) that it is a 19th century copy or possibly a particularly well-made copy of more modern origins. Some more detailed pics would help a lot, especially if someone more knowledgeable chimes in. Regardless, it is a beautiful weapon, I have always particularly liked this form of halberd. http://www.myArmoury.com/albums/displayimage....amp;pos=32

What would help a lot are better photos. Clear closeups of the socket taken from several angles would be especially helpful. Is there any forging delamination? Photograph it. Rust pitting? Get a shot posted!

As Scott said, if this is a replica/later copy, it is one that has captured the form of these late 1500s halberds nicely.
