To me it looks like an original piece that has had the main blade reduced in size.

It is typical for them to seem "too small". Remember people were smaller back then. There would also be a gorget that would cover some of the upper chest.

I have a reinforcement breast plate that...

My impression is similar to others. The blade old and good. The grip and pommel definitely more modern. The guard, I'm less sure but I lean towards 19th C or later.

If it is filled with lead grape shot leaving some void area, the resulting density might be similar to if it were solid steel. Or maybe it is a cannon ball but a replica just made to look like it is...

My apologies for speaking too soon. The other sword had recently been sold. That blade is on a 17th C Campaign sword. Exactly like yours except longer and "Roy" is spelled "Roi".

Here were their...

This is another member with a blade similar to yours, if I remember correctly. I'll send him a note to take a look.

I think your blade has also been shortened /reprofiled some.

In your last picture, look at the shamrock shaped hole punched in the middle. Obviously made by modern tools.

Possibly a number 1 to designate a 1lb shot. Common on british made guns. See the recently sold 2lb gun marked with a 2 (incorrectly described as a 4 pounder).

Old Metal Stirrup?

I don't know much about this type of thing. It was for sale as part of the estate of a well traveled gentleman. Can anyone help me age, location, type of use, scarcity, etc? TIA.

Ive watched a lot of auctions selling US military items and never seen anything like it. A one-off is probably correct.

My thoughts as well. The langets on Fernandos piece are quite substantial. If original I would conclude weapon. If any signs of being added, I would conclude tool.

It looks to likely be cast? Possibly the hilt looks to be connected with the pommel as one piece?

Here is a better pic I took of one of the Dresden swords in your picture.
