For a nearly identical example, see plate 331.S on pg. 172 of "Swords & Blades of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. These open pierced-guard sabers resemble the hilts of weapon wheel swords. The saber features a Spanish-style curved blade with 3 fullers. Due to the crudeness of the fullers, the blade is most likely an American copy. Crossguard with open heart shaped designs on either side of the grip. Counterguard is slightly curved and terminates with a small circular quillon. The D-shaped knucklebow connects to the ball pommel above the pedestal base. Thick brass capstan atop the ball-shaped pommel. Grip appears to be maple. CONDITION: The blade has a mostly even gray patina with scattered areas of darker spotting. Hilt has a pleasing mustard patina with. Grip shows some minor scattered marks and a hairline age cracks bottom. This sword is featured on pg. 346 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords, Volume I" by Dan Hartzler.
