The wide slightly curved blade has a long top partial fuller on each side followed below by five paneled fullers on each side, separated by deeply punched circles. There are three dots forming a triangle on each side of the fullers. The top portion of the blade on both sides is engraved with stars, a half-moon and an unknown inscription, possibly Cyrillic. The four slot brass guard is turned forward at the top and the knucklebow of small proportions shows crude gadrooning. The African head pommel shows detailed monkey like facial features, ears and hair. The wooden grip is grooved and accented with a single strand of brass wire, brass ferrule at base. Complete with its original black leather scabbard with studded brass throat mount. CONDITION: As found and untouched, the blade retains a dark grey patina with scattered darker areas, tip rounded and edge shows some nicks. Guard and hilt retain a dark mustard patina with some very dark patinas, guard and knucklebow show slight bends, guard has some wiggle, tang undisturbed. Wooden grip good with some age cracks. Scabbard shows crazing and flaking to surface, last 1-1/2" and drag are absent. A very unusual Revolutionary War sword. DMG
