Likely British, 1750-1800.

However, the basic shape of both the blade and the cross guard are NOT unique to Britain. It could be anything from Austrian to Dutch.

Someone with a very specific...

An Italian Bill (Roncone) for comment

Do any of you gentlemen have thoughts or details on this Italian Bill?
