Revolutionary War period. This sword was made entirely in America based on then current European styles. The brass hilt is of the English pattern with single side loop to the cross guard, a feature which Norman dates from about 1770 onward. The guard which was probably made by a candle stick maker is notably thicker than English examples. The back strap and pommel are thinner by contrast and the peaked pommel cap is a separate piece as is the baluster button. The grip is covered in thin leather. The blade is hand forged with a broad fuller, short narrow medial fuller and long false edge. See Arms & Armor in Colonial America, Peterson, pl.270, first, for a related example. The sword has a patina and character common to many examples which surfaced in New England in the 1970's in response to the publication of Swords and Blades of the American Revolution in 1973 and anticipation of the Bicentennial.
