Dating to the turbulent early independence period, the Texas Revolution (1835-36) and the Mexican-American War (1846-48). From a well-known group which still surface in Mexico periodically, based on the pattern which developed after Napoleon's defeat. It was adapted by numerous governments including the British as the 1829 artillery officer’s sword. This example is typically Mexican with 27 ¼” broad fullered s.e. blade and is unmarked as typical. The weight and blade length indicate use by an officer. The blade has a glossy patina over salt and pepper pitting and the hilt is surface rusted as is typically encountered. The wood grip lacks any covering, typical as well. This sword also fits well into the 1862 defeat of the French, emboldened by America’s occupation with the Civil War, at the Battle of Puebla, commemorated as Cinco de Mayo. Real piece of Spanish Southwest and Mexican history.
