Hilt construction is the same as was used on swords made in New York by James Potter. The saber features a long, slightly curved, double fullered blade. The hilt features a 4 slot crossguard and D-shaped knucklebow with prominent 1 - 1/2" cutout heart design. The crossguard terminates in a wide spade shaped quillon. Wood grip is wrapped with black leather and features 4 deeply spiraled grooves. 2 thick ferrules secure the grip. Typical elongated iron pommel. CONDITION: All of the iron components retain a dark, heavy, and pitted patina. Scattered nicks in the edge of the blade. Guard exhibits several breaks in cutout decorations and is slightly misshapen. Leather wrap is crazed, some losses above ferrule at base of grip. Some losses to iron ring at the top of the knucklebow, where it connects to the pommel. Guard produces a significant wobble when handled. A similar example is featured on pg. 350 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords, Volume I" by Dan Hartzler, where these style sabers are discussed in detail.
