88 1/4” total length. Iron head with exceptionally long diamond section fore spike, crescent form axe blade and back swept back fluke. The latter two decorated with pierced holes. The cheek straps and spine straps with iron locking ring. Original beaded edge haft with crisp branded arsenal mark of a boar. Iron with old stable surface rust growth and brown patina. Haft with wear to the butt end and isolated old stable worm damage. See Imperial Austria, page 31 #2 for a very similar example preserved in the arsenal at Graz. The boar mark should make this example identifiable to its original armory which is extremely rare.
