    Description

    Unusual Form American Artillery/Infantry Officer's Saber C. 1790. Unusual if not unique form but distinctly American. 29 1/2" blade with single narrow, deep fuller along the back edge. Blade very fine with just some light scattered patina and actually displaying a few minor forging flaws. Retains the original thick leather washer. All brass hilt. Guard with Reverse P knucklebow, slotted for sword knot and spreads out flat at the top to form the pommel cap with exposed peaned blade tang. Absolutely original and untouched as manufactured. The brown leather covered grip with noticeably wider grip flutes and a plain round faced 3/8" brass ferrule at the base. Grip just showing minor wear, very fine. No wire but actually shows no sign in the narrow grip channels that it ever carried any. A very nice sword and exemplary of the nearly endless variety of swords produced for use by local makers for American officers during this period.
