For a similar example, see page 294 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords: Vol. 1" by Daniel D. Hartzler. The slightly curved English style blade has a narrow top fuller and a wider bottom fuller on each side. The silver s-shaped guard has relief bead decoration and a pierced star on each side in the center. The detailed silver eagle head pommel has a turned capstan on top. The spiraling ivory grip is gadrooned with a floral engraved ferrule at the base. Complete with its original silver mounted brown leather scabbard with pressed foliate scroll designs and engraved mounts. CONDITION: Blade retains much original polish with scattered darker grey spots and a couple nicks to cutting edge. Mounts excellent retaining a pewter patina. Pommel slightly loose and chain guard is absent. Grip is very good showing a pleasing honey patina with a couple hairline age cracks and one minor chip at pommel on left side. Scabbard very good showing some minor scuffing, drag absent. A very attractive 18th century Baltimore sword. DMG

ADDENDUM: There is a British silver hallmark on the top flat above the blade, below the guard on the right side. The sword is English rather than American.
