(Below) This photograph shows the pleasing form of this sword. The scabbard mounts conform to the 1803 British model on which this sword is based.
Based on the British M1803 Infantry Officer's Saber, this is a very handsome sword. The scalloped guard with patriotic eagled knucklebow evidences silvered plate. This would be indicative of infantry use. The leather on this scabbard has been professionally replaced. The blade has the etched "Warranted" on the blade near the ricasso suggesting that this blade originated in Birmingham, England. The sword maintains it's original wool washer.
