 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Nice example of a three-quarter basket hilt of French and Indian War vintage, also used in the American Revolutionary War. Iron hilt with serpent-head engraving at various junction points on the guard and to the counter guard terminals. Fine ray skin grip with original wire binding. Nice, clean blade with no obvious defects.

There is minor patination to the whole of the iron guard, with the exception of the pommel.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
