Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tough to find sword! This is the pattern that is illustrated as figure 32a in Flayderman's book of American Swords from the Medicus collection. He labels it as a sword for the Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company of Boston. This artillery company was started in Boston in 1638. They had their own buttons and buckles and it makes sense that they had their own swords as well. This one is completely unmarked but definitely has that style of handguard. The blade is full-length at 32 inches and has the single fuller going down each side. It has traces of an old coating of gold paint blade that is mentioned for exactness and is priced accordingly. It has a brass hand guard that has three branches on the front side and a small guard on the back side. The original handle is intact on the grip with leather and the double twist brass wire. The sword is missing the scabbard as they often are. This sword will date from the late 180's. This is a lot of sword for a little bit of money!
