38.5" blade, 1.5" wide at the forte. Hilt of this fine sword is virtually identical to figure 393 in Leslie Southwick's The Price Guide to Antique Edged Weapons, however the pommel is clearly Scottish and not English. Unusually long blade with double fullers extending nearly the entire length of the sword. The hilt with rudimentary file work pierced with hearts. Dome pommel with four flutes. Blackened shagreen grip wound with copper wire.
Blade is worn showing great age, now smooth metal. Basket is cleaned, mostly smooth metal. Shagreen grips in fine condition for a sword of this age. Sword could have been carried by a very tall officer in the American Revolution.
