For another example of this identical pattern, see plate 45.S on page 76 of "Swords and Blades of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. He dates this pattern to between 1740 and 1760. Slightly curved unfullered blade. Heart shaped guard and integral knucklebow of brass, left side of guard was removed during the period for comfort while carrying. The front of the guard is inscribed "HRE 18" with a strike through it. The left side of the knucklebow is stamped "6 KRB_3C_204". Large oval pommel with capstan and spiraling cast brass grip. This pattern is associated with regiments sent to America during the Revolutionary War. CONDITION: Blade retains a dark patina with lower section pitted and tip rounded. Brass retains a dark unpolished patina. A very nice example. DMG
