    I don’t think this is a military or wartime weapon but I could not find a hunting or medieval weapons category

    Beautiful old crossbow with working trigger mechanism. I can find very little about it but did see one other example of one like this marked E Banse

    There appear to be maker marks on the metal pieces including the steel bow

    There is what appears to be a nameplate on bottom of stock which reads: CH Deudon CAMBRAI

    The marks on the steel bow appear to be: a catillon and also “soris” or possibly “sovis”

    Marks on other metal plates:
    E Banse
    Au Cateau
