Lot 1154, a 17th century suit of Lower German armour for the field in attractive, well-restored quality, turned out to be another highlight. With its open burgonet, cuisses and ridged gauntlets, the fine armour was sure to be snapped up for its asking price of 12,500 euros. Nonetheless, it coaxed an enthusiast into investing 16,875 euros.
Among the edged weapons, a particularly rare Viking sword from Scandinavia was worthy of special mention (lot number 1288, guide price 18,000 euros). The inlaid blade inscription "+ULFBERTH+" and silver-inlaid swastika ornaments were able to command their price and the sale was completed at 22,500 euros.
