Old sword. Maybe from the Holy Roman Empire (962–1806)? The Holy Roman Empire capital was in what today is Germany. Overall length 32". I do not know where it came from. The writing on it appears to be German in origin.

One of the words on the sword spells "WIERSBERCH" which is the old way of spelling the name of the city of Wirsberg. Wirsberg is a town located in Bavaria in Germany (near Kulmbach) (www.wirsberg.de) first mentioned 1231 A.D. Judging from the website this city had a background of some importance in the middle ages.

A sword is a weapon designed for cutting and thrusting. It consists of a long straight or curved blade with a handle or hilt and a cross-guard and usually a sharp point.

There are several pages of old sword. Be sure to check them all.
