Iron hilt with faceted knuckle bow, pommel, quillon block, and guard edge. Made to sparkle in the candlelit rooms where these were worn in large social gatherings. Fine silver wire wrapped grip. 25 ½” concave faced triangular section blade, gray with oxidation speckles. Original red blade seat. These were the off duty swords worn by officers. This one as with many has been blackened for funerary wear as the owner aged and his comrades perished. See Neumann 224.S for a near-identical example associated with the American Revolution.
