Complete with an 18th century associated black leather scabbard with iron mount at the top. The scabbard also has its original leather frog and homespun strap. CONDITION: Blade retains a grey patina with scattered spots of light pitting and darker patina. Hilt retains a mustard patina, showing some scattered marks from use and some minor bending to guard branches and knuckle bow. Grip excellent showing a honey patina with some hairline age cracks. Scabbard shows losses to surface and crazing with a small portion missing at the tip. Frog shows some losses and strap has been reattached. A nice and scarce form of an American Revolutionary War period cavalry saber. DMG. PROVENANCE: From the Collection of George M. Rapport.
