For a similar example, see plate 319.S on page 168 of "Swords and Blades of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. The sword is probably New England c. 1775-1780. The early single edged blade is nearly straight and measures 32 1/2" with a single fuller along the top on both sides. Both sides have a stamped running fox marked "HARVEY" in the center of the body. The large brass four slot guard has a stirrup hilt with integral ring at the flat pommel. The deeply fluted cherry grip is highlighted with a single strand of brass wire. There is a large brass ferrule at the base. CONDITION: Blade retains a grey surface with scattered minor "battle nicks" to cutting edge. Markings show some wear. Hilt retains a pleasing dark mustard patina with some scattered marks from use and a non structural crack at front of knucklbow. Grip very good with a hairline age crack on both sides. Pommel is undisturbed and hilt is slightly loose to blade. A very attractive American made Revolutionary War cavalry saber. DMG
