Iconic example of the functional and lethal swords carried by men in the streets in Europe and Colonial America. See Swords and Blades of the American Revolution, Neumann, #203.S. Brass hilt, originally gilt with remnants of gold in protected areas. Asymmetrical double shell guards, large ring guards and olive form pommel. Fine brass wire wrapped grip. 31 7/8” hollow faced triangular blade of fighting form. If you owned one 18th century sword, this would probably be the best representative example.
