33 ¼” d.e blade, convex at the forte and flattened diamond section to the point. The forte decorated in scrolling foliage, repeated continued on the first 4” of the flat section. Decoration uniformly crisp throughout. Velvet blade seat. Iron hilt with slightly asymmetrical shell guards. The guards, quillon block and pommel pierced in central foliate motifs on lattice ground. Good wire wrapped grip. The hilt with same age wear throughout. Probably the sword of a military officer. Its dating suggests French & Indian War service and its survival is probably owed to continued service which could include the Revolution and French Wars through the War of 1812.
