This sword was purchased brand new via the British Naval Attache, Madrid. It shows, in its suspension and in the casting of the lion's-head a marked German stylistic influence. The workmanship of the etching is poor on the whole and this is presumably the explanation for the 'coronet' on the blade. The crown on the hilt, though, lacks the five arches noral on the Crown of Spain. Presumably, the mark on the reverse of the blade signifies that it was made in the Fabrica Nacional in Toledo.
