Classic example of those pressed into service during the French and Indian Wars and the Revolution. 20 ½” heavy wedge section blade struck with a large fleur de lis mark to the right side. Brass hilt about identical to Swords and Blades of the American Revolution, Neumann, #86.S, identified as European and dated 1700-05. The shell guard remaining with the knuckle bow and quillon removed at the time of use. This is often encountered and evidently done to allow a fast secure grip in the heat of battle, without interference from the guard. Antler grip with brass base ferrule. Untouched as found condition as encountered in New England in the 1950’s. The blade with stable brown surface. Grip age shrunk with the mounts now loose. Classic attic find, untouched since its use in the 18th century
