The 27 1/4 inch period sharpened blade is in good condition but with a few minor nicks and a slight wobble to the very tip. Blade has very slight movement in hilt; not much at all. The guard is cracked / split near the pommel at its weakest point; it looks to be a period break and could be braised / repaired but I would leave it as is. Otherwise the hilt / guard is good. The grip with age and wear but good.

Most likely a British capture from those rebellious Americans! Nicely priced at £750. Please quote item reference number W04. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1118-101x19x17 (1.734).
