Old Sword
Thu May 31, 2012 09:54

I have an old sword that has been in the family for many years. The blade is curved. At the base of the blade is stamped: US 1799. On the other side is stamped what looks like: N Starr . Does anyone know the history of this type of sword, which branch of the military ?

      Sounds like you have a Nathan Starr Federal Contract of 1798 saber. Full stamping on the obverse side of the blade is N Starr & Co Very desirable saber. Rick Wagner
