Rare early example. Identical to Peterson #12 with cross guard decorated in floral motifs, cruciform with pointed langets. That style draws from the Ottoman taste and saw selective use in American and England in the first half of the 19th century. Reeded bone grip with good patina (single crack and small chips). 25 ½” broad d.e. blade etched with military trophies and eagle clutching arrow cluster below motto Estates Unes on ribbon. Gray, quite smooth with minor pitting. Hilt with fine aging.
