These sabers were usually crafted with iron or brass hilts and were used by light cavalry. The saber features a broad, straight blade with double fuller and a 6" false edge. The upper fuller is deep and spans most of the length of the blade. The secondary fuller is broad and shallow. The 4-slot iron crossguard with D-guard connects to the lemon shaped, high dome pommel. The grip is of yellow pine, featuring deep spiraled grooves. Leather wrap and brass wire once covered the grip. Iron ferrule at both ends. The maker of this sword almost certainly saw examples made by James Potter of New York; Potter was a prolific maker of cavalry sabers for loyalist troops. CONDITION: The blade has a brown heavy patina, tip rounded. Guard and pommel exhibit a matching patina. Ferrules are loose due to lack of leather wrap, but hilt is tight to blade. Grip shows some scattered chips and age cracks. This sword is featured on page 350 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Sword,s Volume I" by Dan Hartzler.
