Blade length 15in.
Widest point of the blade 1.75in.

Sword 2:

Charles I would agree with your assessment, perhaps just slightly earlier.

The second one once had rings with white hair.

Beautiful swords Charles ! I bam in agreement with what everyone else has said about them, especially Jose's thoughts about them being possibly being of a slightly earlier origin. Thank you for posting these for our records.

Best,
Robert
