    Description

    Group Of Six Large Knives Being Primarily 20th Century Reproductions of Earlier Style Knives. Group includes the following: 19th century Moro or Mexican short sword with iron mounted hilt with S shaped guard, wooden grip with iron ferrules, 20" flat blade and nicely decorated original brown leather scabbard. Overall fine untouched condition.; Two Confederate D-guard style knives, while giving the appearance of being old we believe to be 20th century reproductions both bearing spurious maker's signatures on the blades. One "T. S. Leech & Co." and the other "O. S. Haynes / Macon". Both in very good condition and clearly old but in our opinion definitely not period.; a knife with clipped point blade stamped in large letters "C. S. A." on one side of the ricasso and "T G & CO / NO" on the other. S shaped iron guard, wooden grip with iron ferrules at top and bottom and brass pommel cap meant to look like a Potts bayonet. Leather sheath also stamped "C. S. A. with brass tip with ring on the bottom. Sheath and knife both in very good condition; a knife with one piece stag/antler grip with oval iron cross guard and huge spearpoint blade which exhibits what we believe is chemically induced pitting; a knife that actually appears to be original 19th century with huge blade with slightly clipped point and false edge with one piece grip with iron ferrules at top and bottom. A fascinating group if only for the ingenuity and imagination of the makers of these pieces.
