Sales enquiries

A transitional model between mainstream models for 1808 and 1816, perhaps an early "Baltimore" cutlass, with ribbed iron grip and iconic US heavier nearly straight blade with slightly flared point. Possibly a US Privateer's (Pirate's) Cutlass. Most likely a British War of 1812 capture.

The 26 inch period sharpened blade (feint possible markings to the forte) has a steady patina throughout, a couple of nicks and is firm in the grip. The steel guard is a little loose and damage bent in places but is overall good; it appears to once have had a lip which has gone.

A very nice example for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AE71 (0980). Further / full sized images available upon request.
