For a nearly identical hilt, see plate 57.S on page 80 of "Swords and Blades of the American Revolution" by George C. Neumann. This example appears to be English with a slightly curved blade stamped "WM./HAR/VEY" on both sides. There is a 6" false edge. The guard is of iron and forms a heart shape with a forward facing quillon. There is a semi-basket on the right side, which is typically observed on European grenadier hangers. The wooden grip is wrapped with shagrin and decorated with braided brass wire. The pommel has an integral capstan and is inscribed "Ct. / I+H / No. 25", probably for a colonial Connecticut regiment. CONDITION: Blade and hilt retain a dark brown patina with some scattered pitting. Some nicks to edge. Markings are certainly period and are clear. Grip shows some losses to wrap. A very good mid-18th century hanger. DMG. PROVENANCE: From the Collection of George M. Rapport.Blade Length: 22 - 1/4"Overall Length: 28 - 1/4" Condition: Dimensions:
