Regular price $150.00 Sale

4 1/8" length of slender proportions with thickened diamond section point. Stable excavated condition with some areas of original surface. Made for use against leather and mail armor, these were sometimes known as "horse killing bolts" as they could bring down a charger, inadvertently or not whereas it could sustain an arrow wound and fight on. Recovered at Königstein Castle, Hesse, Germany, between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden. With copy of original find/collection note. The castle ruins stand today with the earliest portions reduced to the ground floor in the 14th century and rebuilt and fragmented several times thereafter with several buildings in the town of Königstein constructed from the castle stone. Rarely encountered with such specific and historic information.
