Would love any help identifying this sword guys. I don't know much about them, but got this at the Flea Market where I work. I tried doing image searches for the hallmark but couldn't come up with anything. Thank you.

Welcome aboard

There has been some thought from some of the Spaniards on another board that it was a mark associated with Oscar Kolombatovich. I do not know whether there was another maker who was making swords for Kolombatovich (Corrado has been mentioned) and many of the Kolombatovich swords I have seen have no mark at all, or simply stamped Spain at the base of the blade.

There are others here more familiar but the quillons and overall kind of look like the same family of swords.

Cheers

GC

This looks to be a Spanish made replica sword. Although of better quality than more recent ones. Afraid I can't help more than that. A 20th century item for sure.

I appreciate the input you two. Any idea of a ballpark value on something like this? I may keep it, or may end up selling it. I see other swords on craigslist, but not anything too similar to this one at the moment.
