This collection belonged to Melchor Cordeyro Echague who moved from Europe to Argentina in 1888 - bringing the entire collection with him.

One item for sale here is an original sword from the early years of the Christian Era!! Very rare and hundreds of years old! The entire collection was passed down to the Grandfather's hands and then to the father and after he passed away three years ago, it wad divided among his four sons.
