    James' text is in bold:

    Great examples, James. Very interesting to see the similarities, but for me that isn't solid evidence that the swords are by Mole. I think we need one of two things to be able to say that Mole used...

    It is not uncommon for levee swords to not have a proof disc. Also, proof discs, the star, or other proof marks were never required to be on officers' swords. It's just a trend that Wilkinson started...

    I used to have an identical cutlass. I bought it as a teenager thinking it was real. I'm now certain that it was a replica. A very good one, and probably an old replica. A collector friend of mine...

    The handle looks like it is from a set of cutlery. My guess is that it is a composite piece.

    I apologize for derailing this further, but photobucket recently made some changes and 3rd party hosting now costs $400 per year. I suggest finding a different photo hosting site.
