ARTIFACT: This is a great circa 1820's US Militia period sword, made by the Philadelphia-based maker F.W. Widmann. The scabbard is decorated wonderfully, with stars, eagles, and leaves lining the front of it. The hilt and hand guard are also teeming with beautiful decorations. The blade is actually in fairly great shape given its age.

VINTAGE: Circa 1820's

SIZE: About 35-1/2" x 3-3/4" x 2-1/4

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Steel, brass, wood

ATTACHMENT: None

MARKINGS: "F.W. WIDMANN PHILADA"

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): There are dents on the scabbard, tarnish on the blade, and the hand guard moves as it is loose. Despite its age, the sword is still in very good condition

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
