I like the bronze medallion that was put onto the Lancaster's pommel.

When I saw the title of the topic I was already thinking they are trying to sell them as originals. Happy

as somebody who has never bought anything from Hermann Historica, I have a 'newbie' question. When they have an item on there and it says, "limit 500 Euro", is that a minimum starting bid price? What would the real price likely be?

Jean,
It's the minimum price (not including buyers premium) for either auction or post auction sale.

http://www.hermann-historica.de/db2_en/faqs01.html

More info in this link.

The online catalog is well worth an hour or so of ones time just for dreaming. There's a German type XIX that I've seen published before that I'd buy in a heartbeat if I were footloose and fancy free.

Yeah I've looked at theirs and other catalogues for years to get a glimpse of authentic antique weapons and armor, but going through this time I noticed some items that seemed like they were within my price range if the 'minimum price' had any relationship to the actual price. (big "IF")

You mentioned an after-auction sale, does that mean that items which did not get auctioned go on sale in some other format later?

Eric.

I assume you mean this beauty which failed to sell in their last sale with a reserve of 9000 euro, now up with a 7700 reserve.

Arma Bohemia have a version of it in stock (EP68), though cross and blade different and blunt, I think http://www.armabohemia.cz/Novestr/handA.htm

Yes Sir, that's my baby!
One of these days I'll hit Arms and Armor up for a repro of that piece. I'd never risk an original in my hands. Arma Bohemia looks to have nailed the pommel pretty well.
