Swords like these were purchased from France to meet the needs of the American forces during the Revolution. The hilt of this sword is an older reproduction from the 1970's cast as one piece. The blade and scabbard are brand new from G.G. Godwin. The blade is 26 1/2" long matching the length of swords that were purchased from France to equip Virginia troops. Many of those swords ended up being issued to the Virginia Militia. The hilt is 5" long and is secured by a pommel screw. Included is the leather sword carriage shown in the photos and shipping in the continental US.

Reproduction model 1767 hangers are rare as hens teeth. Be the only kid on the block who has one!IMG_1537.jpgIMG_1538.jpgIMG_1539.jpgIMG_1536.jpgIMG_1540.jpg Price is $300 which includes shipping in the lower 48.

Beautiful in it's elegance and simplicity, the kind of uncomplicated weapon a soldier needs, and short enough for close quarter combat. 'The arrogance of excellence.'

Below are some images/information that may be of interest to those not already familiar with this hanger. The bottom image is from Neumann's "Swords and Blades of the American Revolution."

I will entertain reasonable offers.
