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 an unfullered American manufactured blade that is nearly straight. 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 and there is a thin brass ferrule at base of grip. CONDITION: The blade has a gray patina with scattered brown spotting. A couple battle nicks to edge. Guard has a pleasing dark mustard patina. Grip very good with a couple marks from use and a thin hairline crack. Hilt slightly loose to blade. A similar example is featured on pg. 346 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords, Volume I" by Dan Hartzler.
