This is an exquisite example of such a sword made during late bronze age (around 1,000 to 1,200 BC) in Luristan. This is a penannular type (see the Crescent creating the guard) made with the ancient "lost wax casting".
This sword is more than 20 inches high with superb patina covering it.
Only 1 litle ding else it is about flawless, a true jewel which is more than 3,000 years old!!!
