For a nearly identical example, see plate 56.SS on page 322 of "Battle Weapons of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. This classic sword features a slightly curved English blade with false edge towards tip and a narrow top fuller followed by a wider fuller below on each side. The front section of the blade is polished, while the top 8-1/2" is blued and decorated with hand painted gilt foliate scrolls in the earliest style. The four slot brass guard features a gadrooned knucklebow. Classic engraved and chased lion's head pommel with capstan. The horn grip is wrapped with a piece of thin crimped copper. Complete with its original tooled brown leather scabbard with repousse mounts, the top mount featuring a lion bearing teeth and tongue. CONDITION: Blade retains nearly all of its original bright polish and gilt and blue finishes, some scattered areas of flaking or frosting and some scabbard marks. Hilt and grip retain an untouched and unpolished dark patina. Tang is undisturbed and hilt is tight to blade. One minor chip on grip, below pommel. Scabbard very good, showing an old repair just above the drag, some scuffing and seam separation along cutting edge side. Mounts are dark and unpolished. DMG.
