29” curved single edged blade with broad fuller full length and narrow back fuller to the 5” false edge, showing distinct hand hammered construction. Large hilt with four slotted wrought iron guard, brass lion head pommel and triple wire wrapped spirally fluted black horn grip. Shows uniform wear from use. The blade lightly pitted and the guard with its wrought iron structure evident on the outer curve, evidently stored against a humid surface, wall or table resulting in localized degradation. Inner grip congealed, apparently from heat. While these American Revolutionary swords were probably made in small groups, surviving examples are mostly unique. This one shares features with several American examples shown in Swords and Blades of the American Revolution, Neumann, including examples 194.S, 318.S, and 321.S. Its condition is uniform with great character and typical for American examples.
