    The sword with the guard is an Imperial Germany NCO sword, value to the right collector, 12 to 15 hundred. The Knights Head sword I'm not sure of, likely same period, but strickly dress sword.

    The sword on the right is a Knights of Pythias sword. They were a fraternal order that started during the American Civil war and are still around today. I don't know the age of this one, but lots of fraternal order swords are late 19th/early 20th century.

    I respectfully disagree with Dave's identification as an NCO sword. It's a model 1889 Prussian Officer's Sword. These were in service from 1889 to the end of WWI. From the composition of the grip, I think this one appears to be closer to the WWI era Here's a link:
