This American-made iron-mounted saber is by one of the Philadelphia or Connecticut makers and dates to the first or second decade of the 1800s. It is mounted with a massive 31" blade with a single narrow fuller at the top. Scabbard has two iron brackets with loops for the carrying rings brazed on to the body of the scabbard, as we see on the Nathan Starr swords. The shoe is of early 19th c. American type as well, flush with the scabbard bottom. The scabbard throat piece is long gone. The grip is polished walnut or similar hardwood, ribbed, and was never covered. The patina intermixed with original japanning is quite pleasing.
A very interesting War of 1812 period American iron-mounted sword, perhaps from a State contract.
