    Hey guys, pretty new to the forum so if I've posted this in the wrong spot, let me know.

    My grandfather, RIP, gave this sword to me when I was a kid. I don't think he used it in any war, he was probably just a collector like ourselves. My mom used to always warn me that there was dried poison on the tip.

    Any ideas on the history behind this sword? I don't know where to even start.

    Looks Prussian/German and of white brass (nickle silver). It is too bad I can't see much of the etching. Any letters or numbers on the base of the blade or spine might be helpful.

    Cheers
