Sword

 

Dan, the easiest is to contact one of the people that are dealing with swords. You can try Michael Kaplan Auctions. They might be able to help.

You are lucky. Mine was stolen during a Housebreaking a few years ago and could never get it replaced.

Was thinking of that Nadia, but I earned mine and feel that it just won't feel the same, paying for something that in the first place I worked hard for.

And the sad part is, the person who stole it propably doesn't even know what it really is and why people got them...

Hi Dan,

 

You just upload the photo to bob, like you do when making your auctions. Copy the URL and paste it in your post, click on Img then paste the URL then click on Preview, check to see if everything is OK then click Submit.

If the sword is chrome it is only worth R500. but if it is gold plated then it is worth up to R1 500.

sword

 

So please enlighten me, was it the gold plated sword ? And when was it sold? Would you pay this much for this sword?

 

Are you trying to make me look like a fool? I know of two stainless steel swords for sale around here in Queenstown and a friend has a Generals sword as well.

 

Swords are not my speciallity, the info that I told was given to me by a policman,

 

Do you know how to adjust the vales of a Mercedes Benz V8 truck engine?

So my police friend was correct that it was gold plated, I wonder how many of these there are? Do you have any idea then what the stainless steel swords would then go for?

 

Thankyou

Hi

 

I have no idea.

 

I'm sure it must be some very serious collector that bought this one from Dan.

 

Maybe Dan can tell you as I am sure he did his homework concerning this one.

SAP GENERAL SWORD

 

Hi Wragler

The last thing I wanted to do was make you look like a fool. Just thought I would tell you what it sold for.

The handle was, I believe 9ct Gold plated.

If your friend has a SAP General Sword there is another buyer who may be interested in buying it if he wants to sell.

 

Regards

Hello Dan

 

:lol: I acrually spoke to William this morning, his sword was his fathers and it is the same as the gold plated one, not sure that he wants to sell it, however give him a ring and see (Deleted - Admin), do not say that I gave you his number, he might and he might not.

 

All the best 8)

SAP GENERAL SWORD

 

Hi Wragler,

If your friend wishes to sell the sword tell him to put it on for sale on BOB and then I will send the person who is looking for one a email telling him about the sword.

 

The normal SAP officers sword I believe is worth,on a good day at least R4000.00

 

Regards

Dan :lol:
