Iron hilt with straight diamond section cross guard and rudimentary fluted shell guard. Fine one-piece bone grip in five slightly flaring flutes to the left side. Banded iron pommel cap and chain guard. The grip is convex and decorated on one side with the back flat. The fittings are shaped to conform, confirming that this sword was made reversed, for a left-handed fighter, and not just assembled incorrectly. 22” broad d.e fighting blade decorated with baroque motifs and figured both sides. The decoration worn. A civilian weapon as worn on the streets of American and European cities through the Revolutionary War, French Revolution, and Napoleonic Wars.
