There was a Colt Police revolver, model 1862 number 7850 with original holster for 18,000 SEK (£1597); an English rapier, circa 1630-40 with an iron hilt with traces of silver decoration and a blade inscribed with Clemens Kevller Me Fecit Solingen which went for 25,000 SEK (£2,219); or you could have had a French officer’s, light cavalry sabre, 1822 pattern, with scabbard for 3,200 SEK (£284);  for something a bit fancier, how about a British heavy cavalry helmet, circa 1900, which had the lining missing resulting in a reasonable price of 2,700 SEK (£239).
