Default Antique Medieval German Dagger, 15th century

Want to show you one of my finds. In Germany the farmers of the 15.th century wanted to be free and fought again there lords. All of them where killed at the end. But it was the first revolution in Europe. 300 years before french revolution.

In my Bavaria home village lived many of these fighters. The battlefields are not well known, but i read all about that an found one. One hour long, every signal was a musket ball. Than the find of the day came out.

The dagger is with one cutting edge. Common swords are with cutting edges on both sides, but the farmers were not allowed to produce such swords.

The length of the dagger is 47 cm. Found the same in an auction. Attached as example.

Hope you like it.

That's in good shape for 600 years old. Is that your oldest find?

No, the oldest find is the oldest metal you can find in europe. It is a ANCIENT BRONZE AGE PIN. 4000 years old. It was used to fix the cape. Like you can see it on that picture. I gave it to the archaeologists.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on a cool historic find.
So is this item steel or bronze of some sort?
What metal detector do you have?
Looking forward to seeing some ancient finds from you in the future.

Willkommen von Wisconsin!
What a fantastic find

Von welchen Stadt kommen sie?
When I was in high school, we had an umtauschen programme with a small town called Rosenheim.

I spent three weeks there and it was absolutely wonderful.
OOOOh the madchen

Will give my best.

What a great find. Congratulations on saving a piece of history. You've convinced me I'm digging on the wrong island. Perhaps pirate treasure is in my future
