Overview

This really is a very nice example of an Argentine Model 1909 Artillery Short Sword or Machete. Intended to be used by Argentine elite troops in the Argentine jungle and by the artillery, this fine example comes complete with its original scabbard. 

What is special about this example is that the ARGENTINE CREST is still visible on the ricasso of the blade. These were ordered removed or defaced by Argentine Government order before Export so consequently those with crests are particularly RARE. There looks to have been no attempt to remove it.

The other side of the ricasso bears the maker's information:

Weyersberg 

Kirschbaum & Co 

Solingen

The short sword and scabbard are marked with matching serial number A01340.

Offered in very good condition, this is definitely one of the better examples we have seen. It just has a bit of light scratches on the blade and handle, and the blade was never sharpened, but that is how they came. With a visible crest, this really is a step above. The scabbard is also in great shape, with original bluing and brown leather frog. This looks to be a short sword that was worn in service for a time, but not used.
