American Revolutionary War Sword For Sale

American Revolutionary War Sword

This sword is one of the best condition Revolutionary War swords that I have seen. I place this sword in the school of the well-known Revolutionary War period sword maker, "Potter". There are several reasons that I do so. #l is the flat blade devoid of any fuller. The sword came from Eastern Connecticut, close to Potter's center of operation in New York City. And, the overly large grip and pommel. In "Swords & Blades of The American Revolution" book by George C. Neumann on page 164, #309.3 is a sword that belonged to Bill Guthman similar to this hilt with a blade marked "Potter". Also in "Weapons of the American Revolution" by Warren Moore, page 136 there is a similar sword. This is a very early stirrup guard pattern that was copied here in America from the mid-eigteenth century from the French & German Hussar sabers, leaving off the langets. Harold Peterson in his book "The American Sword" makes reference to the stirrup guard sword of the Revolutionary War period being one of the most popular swords and consequently the Starr contract of 1798 kept this design. This sword has a wonderful overall brown patina on the guard and the grip leather is complete with some surface roughness and one small quarter inch piece missing. It retains its original twisted brass wire. We know the sword maker made at lease three of these because this sword has an assembly or bench mark of Roman Numeral Three "III". It is marked on the blade, the ferrule and the pommel. You can see in the photographs the brazed line on the ferrel, on the pommel and pommel cap. In the photograph of the knuckle bow you can see the dovetailed forge line in the bend of the guard. This has an over-exaggerated quillion. The knuckle bow goes into the grip below the pommel rather than conjoining with the pommel. I believe this to be an early feature. The sword retains half of its original leather washer. The blade shows some areas of its original polish, scattered with discoloration and a few rust spots, mostly toward the tip. The sword overall is 31 3/4" long. The blade is 26" long x 1 1/2" wide. The blade length puts this sword in the class of a hanger or a short saber. The tip of the blade is rounded, does not come to a point for thrust and during the period of its use may have been shortened for use as a short sword. With the shape and curvature of the blade it does not appear to have been a Horseman saber. This sword came from an estate of a French & Indian War and Revolutionary War soldier. His French & Indian War period powder horn was not offered to me and the people were reluctant to give me the name on the powder horn. If I am able to obtain this, I will provide a letter with the information. Authenticity guaranteed as repressented.
