    Cathey, thanks for sharing! We have similar interests. This particular dish-hilt sword is interesting in that all of the others I have seen of this hilt style have had Harvey blades on them and were clearly made in Birmingham. Yours has a German blade, but I still suspect it was hilted in Birmingham. nice swords! tr

    Hey! I just joined here and I'm very interested in 18th and 19th century swords, particularly British swords. I also enjoy colonial swords of the American Revolution and swords of the American Civil War. I've been reading this thread and have really enjoyed the great pictures and insightful posts, I have really learned a lot!

    I have several sabers in my collection, mostly reproductions of Civil War swords, but I also have one or two reproductions from earlier swords.

    Thanks to Morgan for showing me this thread!
