    Thanks everyone I thought it may be a Victorian copy but on examination it looks much older. I was told once European mid to late 17th century ? To me it appears much like a cutlass as its simple...

    Eric there were absolutely unmarked period Starr cutlasses I have seen 16s and 26s. And have heard of an 08 unmarked. I have also seen "one of" probably special order cutlasses by Starr. ...

    In my experience if they had used more authentic dies for the markings and less overdone patina both the 1826 Starr and Baltimore cutlass would fool most collectors. They were very good copies.

    I contacted the seller as well. No response. Eventually there will be a very unhappy buyer. Crazy how people can spend 2K and not do any homework on a purchase first.

    Dick, Looks OK to me from the pictures. Don't see a reason to fake a 61 in this configuration. Not a known officer variation. So a Post civil war private purchase cutlass? wonder if it would show up...
