In Oakeshott's Records of the Medieval Sword is a piece called "Unclassified 9". Does anyone have any other photos of that piece or any information where it is currently? I am particularly interested in getting a closer look at that crossguard and pommel.

It was auctioned at Thomas Del Mar in 2009 (lot 120, very bottom of page). Price was pretty low - the auction house considered it a 19th century imitation. The photo isn't any more detailed unfortunately.

Not a bad photo but unfortunately the exact same angle as the photo in the book. I was hoping to see if that Center section of the Cross guard is rectangular when viewed from the point of the blade or whether it has a taper.
