War 1812 Sword with War of 1812 Land Grant.

Early US made sword with original scabbard circa 1810 – 1814 with War of 1812 Land Grant. The hilt is brass mounted with a nice aged patina. The grip is black leather over wood with a copper ribbon wrap. The curved blade is in pristine condition. It is complete with its brass scabbard in excellent condition with minor aging marks. This sword came from the Pvt William Bobbing, family from Cobb County, Georgia. Pvt Bobbing was in the Georgia Militia in the War of 1812. His widow, Mary Bobbing, received a War of 1812 Land Grant for his service.  The original Land Grant measures 10” X 15” and was signed for President James Buchanan by his secretary. The overall length of the sword is 32 1/2 “ with a 27 3/4 “ blade. A nearly identical sword is illustrated and described in the “THE AMERICAN SWORD 1775 – 1945” by Harold Peterson page 39 item # 38. Neat piece of War of 1812 history!
