This listing has been REMOVED and is no longer active
The first is in very good shape. It still has its original wooden haft and brass rosettes. 233cm total length. The central spike is the longest I've seen at 95cm. The rear beak contains the makers mark of blacksmith Pankraz Taller who worked for the Styrian Armoury in Graz, Austria from 1575 to 1612. $1580 face to face in College Station, TX or $75 insured shipping inside the US.
The second is a little more rough. The wooden haft was possibly replaced at some point in its life. Some of the languets may have been repaired. 264cm total length. The metal has been cleaned a little more than I would prefer. The lower tip of the main blade has a chip missing. It has a clear "HW" makers mark. I haven't tried to ID the mark yet but I have found at least one other Styrian Halberd with the same mark. The staff at the Armoury Museum are very helpful and could probably tell you who the maker was pretty easily. $990 face to face in TX or $85 insured shipping inside the US.
