    Early 19th Century, Possible American Origin, Enlisted Short Sword With Partial Leather Scabbard. Features a 28" wide, slightly curved blade with a false edge that extends back 6" from the point and a single fuller which runs from the hilt to the beginning of the false edge. Each side of the blade is stamped "1806" with a crude running fox logo. The reverse ricasso is stamped "C. BST", presumably the name of the maker. Brass hilt and wood grip. The blade has a smooth brown patina with a few nicks in the cutting edge. The leather scabbard is broken in the center and lacking a section, however the brass throat and tip are present. An interesting short sword in very good condition.
