This Spanish Colonial munition grade dish-hilted or taza rapier is mounted with a 88 cm. long blade, which is dated 1749 on either side, and engraved with a Passau-like running wolf. Probably hilted in the Americas or the Spanish Main, this sword was carried by a Spanish Colonial trooper in the territory spanning what is now the South-Western United States and Mexico. Grip is made out of wood, and along with the iron details of the hilt has acquired a nice patina. There is a small hole remaining in tyhe cup, where the cross-guard was once riveted. Sword is lightweight, with good balance. This sword would look great in a collection of pre-Revolutionary War American swords.
