18th Century American Horseman's Sword

35.75" single-edge blade with full length median fuller and 26" sub-fuller.  Iron half-basket guard with grooved wood grip and globular pommel.  


Blade shows some moderate oxidation with some patches of old removed rust.  Guard has a gunmetal patination with some very light old pitting.  Guard has some stable hairline splits due to age.  A good example of the utilitarian and unpretentious arms favored by Americans during the 18th century.

Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000
