Early American made sword that is uncleaned and has a beautiful forged iron hilt with large oval plate guard with integrally forged knuckle bow and side bars. It has it original American walnut handle that is held in place by a forged round filed decorated pommel. The side bars joined to the knuckle bow by a pair of diagonal bars. The sword has a tapering straight double edged forged and filed 29 ½” blade with a center ridge on both sided of the blade that taper to both edges of the blade. These filed ridges run the full length of the blade. The point is slightly rounded. Sword shows much age and wear, and is in “as found”, with some pitting and an untouched nearly black patina overall. The sword was found in a early home in Shenandoah County, VA. Early American made swords are rare! This is a wonderful early American weapon that could date as early as the late 17th century.  Given where it was found, this sword could easily have been used by Virginia soldiers in the F & I War, The Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and even the Civil War.  Overall length 35 1/4″.
