From the William Fagan Ltd. Collection

Rebellion period, C.1720-45. This example was made for a foot soldier, probably as part of the arming after the Rebellion of 1715. Neumann illustrates a related and near identical example as #241.S. The hilt is of five pierced panels and a particularly wide (2 3/4”) rolled quillon. It has a light tool texture suggesting that it may have been japanned, coated with black lacquer, originally as were the ribbon hilts of a few decades earlier. The blade is 29 3/4”. double edged with three fullers at the forte and as with most, probably German. The simplicity throughout suggests that it was made as part of the arming for the Rebellion, rather than a family weapon used for clan battles. Many Scots fled to North America after the “45 and fought in the French & Indian War, serving both sides as mercenaries. This sword likely survived in North America sparing it the degradation so often seen with examples which were hidden after culloden.
