An interesting example representing the lower end of the price scale, probably carried by a town dweller for protection in the streets. Brass hilt perhaps plated originally. Asymmetrical shell guards with thickened edges. Faceted knuckle bow and pommel. Brass wire wrapped grip. 30 ½” triangular section blade. Original leather scabbard with its mounts complete and in good condition. It’s likely that the survival rate for these plain swords is lower than for their more elegant companions and that they were more common than now indicated.
