An estate-fresh find from the Upstate New York, this infantry officer's short saber dates to the American Revolutionary War. Favored by both the British and the Continental officers, it's in excellent state of preservation, with a beautiful chocolate patina on the iron hilt; horn grip has a couple of small chips and is missing the copper tape wire. Blade is 68 cm-long, in a popular bi-fullered style, with a 22 cm-long false edge, nicely aged, with areas of shallow pitting. This is a battle weapon, which still retains its sharp edge. Saber is housed in a crude wooden scabbard, painted black, with one make-shift carry-ring remaining, and the other now lost. Scabbard has a small area of wood missing at the tip. Presence of the artisan-made scabbard, fabricated to fit this weapon specifically, indicates use by the American Colonial trooper or officer. Probably a captured weapon, this short saber was carried by an American officer in the Revolutionary War. A wonderful piece!
