Hi Guys I was out a week ago Sunday and hit a find that I never would have dreamed of getting. I found whats called a "small sword" these aren't the big broad sword that comes to mind but are the smaller sword that is also in your belt. They are for close combat. The sword is french and dates to about 1720-50. This sword would have been carried by an officer or gentleman of the time and could very well have seen action in the revolutionary war. I'm very pleased to have found it.
