    American Mounted Officer's Saber C. 1775 - 1790. Although very likely of the period of the American Revolution, this form continued in use into the early Federal period. Wide sturdy 33 1/4" curved blade with three narrow fullers along the top edge. Nice smooth dark patina with just some minor scattered light pitting and a few minor nicks. All brass hilt with two outboard branches, the pommel being a multi faceted ball with capstan. Fluted ivory grip, perfect, with nice patina. Original leather scabbard with sheet iron throat mounting a carrying ring and frog stud, which retains the original leather frog with cross hatched decoration, and vestiges of the original coarse linen over the shoulder sling. Leather scabbard with flaking but very sound, apparently missing the tip. Very similar to FIG 143.SS in Neumann's "Battle Weapons of the American Revolution". A most impressive 18th century American saber.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
