The Only Collection of Prehistoric Korean Weapons ever offered for sale, dated by experts to 1500 - 1000 BCE. You will likely never see a Korean Bronze Age weapon offered for sale again, much less an entire collection. This is truly a museum-quality collection with an interesting variety of two stone swords, two stone crescent knives, and eleven stone arrowheads. These arrowheads are identical to the Bronze Age arrowheads on pages 32 - 35 of the catalog, the 29th United Association of the University Museum of Korea Exhibition - Korea's Bow and Arrow, The Military Academy Museum. The sword on the left in the first photo here is identical to a Bronze Age sword in the Korea Army Museum's Journal #6 (1999), page 40, and it is also identical to the sword that is from the iconic collection of Gukeun Lee Yang-sun that is now in the permanent collection of the Gyeongju National Museum and can be seen on page 82 of the museum catalog. Please also see page 15 of the Gyeongju National Museum catalog for a sword that is very similar to the sword on the right of the first photo here. These publications attribute these weapons to the Gyeongju area in 1500 - 1000 BCE. Another useful book on this subject is the 2002 publication, Collection of Korea Army Museum, that gives examples of the differences between Bronze Age and Iron Age Korean weapons. They are quite a bit different, and these are clearly Bronze Age Korean weapons. There are also numerous examples of early Korean weapons in the article on the subject by John Boots in the December 1934 Transactions of the Korea Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. This collection will add great historical depth to any collection, and the price that we are asking is less than the average price of just one antique Korean sword. Swords: 10 inches (25.5 cm), Crescent Knives: 4.25 and 5 inches (11 and 13 cm), Arrowheads: 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 cm).
