If this were the case, then the artillerymen would probably be drawn and quartered, when captured. I think you are repeating a myth.

I don't buy that. Going at 20mph, and encountering someone's rib cage is a stop enough. If pennons were of any use as an additional stop, the working life of a lancer would be quite brief, with...

My guess is that they were deployed against poorly-armed and poorly-trained opponents for a reason. Why waste expensive ammunition and wear and tear of the firearms, when a lancer can pick as many...

Blade is a bit short for a dragoon. It would be safer to just label it an army officer's shashka.

I have not seen a single one.
Do you have literature references for any French cutlass purchases by either of the Confederacy or the Union?
Thanks.

Well, I'm surprised that we haven't found the consensus on this piece yet. Proves that some of the weapons are still not an open book for us.

Nice job stabilizing the wire on the grip, and way too aggressive with the blade. I would have left the patina as is.

This type of hilt dates to the mid-17th c., I would say ca.1650-1670. I don't think it's Spanish at all, or Italian, for that matter. North European, in my opinion.

ID on silver-mounted swords with serrated blades.

These are out of my comfort zone.
The mounts are sterling silver. What is the exact attribution?
Thanks!

Good call on the broken top jaw. I didn't notice that.
Here's another DOmingo Mas pistol, very similar to the topic starters. Still has the hook.

A lovely pistol, thanks for showing it. The hole is probably for a belt hook retaining screw.

Thanks, Runjeet. Why do you think the hilt was wrapped like that? For storage?
Is my tentative dating it to the mid-1800s correct?
