Probably Philadelphia circa 1790, the slightly curved single-edged blade has a narrow partial fuller along the top on both sides. Thin sheet silver stirrup hilt guard with forward turned quillon at top of guard. Detailed silver eagle head pommel in the Philadelphia style. Ebony grip with bulbous sections and silver ferrule at the base. Complete with its original brown tooled leather scabbard with shaped and lightly engraved silver mounts. CONDITION: Blade retains a spotted grey surface with some scattered pitting and heavier patina, especially at tip. Edge has been sharpened and shows some minor losses towards tip. Guard is broken just above blade and held in place by a temporary repair. Pommel shows some minor losses just above grip and an old lead repair at knucklebow joint. Silver retains a pleasing pewter patina. Grip shows some minor chipping around pommel and ferrule at base. Scabbard is in two pieces, with some loss at break. Otherwise good with a crazed surface and could be easily repaired. A very attractive and early silver mounted American eagle pommel sword. DMG
