    Description

    Lot of Two Continental Officers' Swords. Including: 1) German made officers' sword with a 31" straight blade lightly engraved with panoplies of arms and other floral decoration. Maker marked "K & S" on the obverse ricasso and "Solingen" on the reverse ricasso. Brass hilt with wire wrapped grip. Very similar in form to a British 1786 Pattern officers' sword.

Blade with a dark patina nicks on the both edges of the blade. Good condition.
