I saw a couple of interesting weapons in the illuminated manuscripts, but not sure what they are.

Any ideas?

Top: what type of dagger is this? Is that a rondel?

UBH Cod. Pal. germ. 339 Parzival
Germany AD 1443-1446

Bottom: Is this a knife? (on the right)
382v

I'm certainly no expert, but the top one looks like a rondel to me, and the date is right.

The bottom one... looks more like a flanged footman's mace. But then the object that looks like it's being handed over looks like a disposable camera to my mind.

The top is definitely a dagger of some sort, but I've never seen a rondel with a spiked pommel. WTF?! Not to say there never was such. The bottom, I concur , looks like a short-shafted footman's flanged mace. I wouldn't mind having a replica of either one...or both. Big Grin ....McM

I wouldn't bat an eye at the first one, simply a rondel with a pommel. But the second looks like a sort of flanged (or not...) mace with a strange shaft.

And a wax sealed letter...

Which means the item in question is a sonic screw driver...

They didn’t have disposable cameras back then, that is clearly a pack of Lucky Strikes...
