For a very similar example, see plate 91.SS on page 334 of "Battle Weapons of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. Circa 1750, this sword has a single edged blade with narrow partial fuller along the top on both sides. There is a silver ferrule at the top of the blade to secure scabbard. The s- shaped guard has dual fan engraved quillons, the bottom with a chain guard extending to the pommel. Center of silver guard is gadrooned. Pommel cap chased with a grotesque face and has a turned capstan on top. Spiraling gadrooned ivory grip with silver ferrule at base. Complete with its original wood and black leather covered scabbard with lightly engraved silver mounts. CONDITION: Blade retains a spotted grey patina. There is a period American repair 7-1/2" back from the tip, using brass. Tip rounded. Silver retains a pleasing pewter patina, grip and pommel have slight wiggle. Grip very good with a honey patina and some hairline age cracks, left side shows some raised grain from moisture. Scabbard has splits at top and bottom edges and a couple inches missing at tip. Finish shows flaking and crazing. A very nice and early silver hilted cuttoe. DMG
