Well, I was wondering about repro, actually .
The edge is rebated but this could have been done for display; no ? .
One hell of a distressing job if it is a repro; layers of rust .
The blade has great flex ....
 If this sword is the real thing it was made between 1806 and 1808 .
Jim, this sword is huge; you need a quarter acre just to swing it . LOLZ !
