Fine and rare sabre, from the American Wars of Independence (c.1775 - 1783), in museum condition.

Unusual combination of highly curved Hussar style blade mated with a Spadroon hilt. The blade is a good tight fit with the hilt, no movement.

Hilt consists of a 'cushion' pommel, square section wooden grip having a single ferrule, a brass stirrup shaped knuckleguard and straight counterguard (the knuckleguard has an old repair to it). Also, a loose ring for a sword knot.

The blade measures 29 inches in length and has acquired a lovely deep Plum colour. A single fuller runs along it's length up until the last 5 inches. A painted museum number is seen at the ricasso, number "268".

The leading edge of the blade has been service sharpened and has signs of combat use.
