Austrian cavalry officer's sword p/1869 and p/1904

Both swords aparently belong to the same person and have this person's initials on the pommels (EG). Crown shows that the owner was a baron (freiherr). If he was Hungarian, then the name could be Gyorgy, this would explain also the Saint George on the hilt.

p/1904 sword is typical and not so interesting. p/1860 is much better, with perfectly elaborated and detailed Saint George.

Hallo,

very nice items! But the crown with 5 pearls shows neither a "Baron" nor a "Freiherr".

9 pearls = Graf
7 pearls = Freiherr
5 pearls = untitulierter/einfacher Adel

Schorsch

Thanks all for the answers!

Yes, I was not correct about the title, in Germany barons had seven pearls. I'm not that good at heraldy.

Best regards,
