    Prahl Style Brass Hilt American Eaglehead Saber C. 1790. Generally associated with the Philadelphia area, these sabers are often identified as having been used by American artillery officers and exist in several forms. This example has the earliest form 33" flat blade with three narrow fullers along the top. Blade generally smooth and gray, with just a few small scattered areas of light pitting, minor, there are no nicks. All brass hilt excellent, with rather crude delineation of the eagle's eyes and beak. Hilt overall with nice patina. A fine example of this rare and desirable American sword form.
