This American officer's sword dates ca.1810. Scrolled decoration of the grip is often seen on the grips of the American swords of that period. An interesting feature is the presence of the inscription E.RICHARDS & Co. on the reverse side of the blade. Stephen Richards of New York, a listed War of 1812 American sword retailer was in business of sword importation with his relatives on the other side of the Atlantic. The name E.RICHARDS could have belonged to one of his British cousins.
Blade is 30.5" in length, decorated at the forte with floral motifs, liberty caps, Federal Shield with 13 stars upon it, drums, and crossed cannons. Some of the gold wash remains on the blade, and traces of silver are present on the hilt. Blade has some dark spots, but no pitting, and is straight and true. A very good War of 1812 US Army mounted artillery officer's saber!
