Thank you;)
A little bit of history of this sword:
It had been originaly in an austrian sword collection for a few decades, than it was sold to the US, layed there for additional decades as well, now I brought it back to the good old Hungary, so now, it is only 50km-s away from its home, Austria.:)

Hello Voci!
Interessting sword and interessting Story.
I´ve never seen a Grasser Blade with this stamp mounted in this Kind of sword.
Even though Grasser was a more expansive dealer, the sword doesn`t look very exclusive.
The ornaments made in the guard doesn`t look very precise and also the grip, which should be ray-skin, or at least fish-skin, Looks like leahter with some spots on it.
Also the sealing on the end of the guard is the cheap Version.
So it Looks to me very strange, but more interessting than the "usual" ones.
I like you sword very much!!!
Also the history of it`s journey back to Europe to the land of the holy crown of St. Stephan is very interessting and I like to thank you, for bringing it back to where it belongs.
It doesn`t matter if it is in Hungary or in Austria, we share the same past, and the troops which were equipped with this sword where also active in Hungary to defend it during the great war!

Once more: Thank You

Hello Alex, thank you for your answer, for me the interesting thing was this grinded vertical line after the grasser logo on the both side of the blade, I have never seen such before.
The closing is really the cheapest method, similar closing are likely on the arsenal swords, but I can assure you that this sword is an untouched piece:)
Dou you have a pattern for the frog maybe, because it is missing?
As I read, closed portepee was used for this sword, right?

Hello Voci!
Regarding the lines in the blade, I guess it could be the same reason, for which it also on other swords.
After the 2. war, all weapons (even Sabres) had to be brought to the occupation authorities of the allies.
The U.S. authorities confiscated them or made them unusable.
For the swords, they cut into the blade, mostly just about a centimeter.
Sometime, they were gracious and justed "marked" them, so the owner had the evidence, that he brought his weapon to the authorities to register.

Maybe, your lines are according to this procedure!

What is a "frog"?

The frog is the leather case where the sword is fixed, like the bayonets in their leather frog.
