    I have been made an offer to trade these two pistols for an antique sword I have. I do not know much about them but I have been told that they may be Italian possibly made by Lazarino around 1750. He says they were converted from flintlock to percussion at some point. I have added pictures to aid in identification.

    well they both have beautiful markings on them and the grains in the wood.
    no clue what they're worth or the sword.
    Do you have an idea on the worth of the sword?

    A matched pair obviously increases the value. Beautiful work.

    I really don't know the value of the sword however I have seen similar for anywhere from $600 to $8000. It is a royal presentation sword from the first world war. This is why I am trying to find out the value of the pistols.
