This auction is for a WWII vintage Philippine Talibong Bolo and sheathe. It appears to be handmade. It is in very good condition, the blade is not rusted or corroded. OAL of this Bolo and sheathe is ~22 7/8”, the blade is ~17 ¼” and the handle is ~4 7/8”. The sheathe appears to be some sort of plastic material as does the handle.
This Bolo belonged to a WWII US Army Colonel whose collection included firearms (mostly European and Japanese from WWll and before), edged weapons and more. This piece will make an excellent addition to someone’s collection.
We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve by the end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
