See Neumann 60.S. 32” straight d.e. blade with remnants of a maker’s mark at the forte. Iron hilt. The guard with three scrolling bars to the right an olive form pommel. Iron wire wrapped grip with turban form terminals. The Neumann example incorporates metal ferrules rather than wire knots, a feather introduced about this time, and identifying this example as of the earlier end of the time frame. Excellent for the period. The elements crisp with gray patina. Blade with a light transverse tool finish as made and displaying identical aging effects. Rare example dating to the French and Indian Wars of mid-century as well as the Revolution.
