Spanish Colonial Period Officer's Rapid- Sword early 1700's
Spanish colonial period officer's transitional rapier-sword, dated back to the early 1700's, weight is 580 grams, and 34" in length! A transitional pieces - somewhere between the long blade of the earlier rapier and the shorterm lighter blade of a small sword- compromised of an all steel hilt, simple, turned-wood grip, and pierced-through decorations. a Toledo (Spain) armorer's mark on both sides of blade ensures its provenance. Overall good condition with age toning all over. Comes with photo certificate!
