Yeah... Well I mean it really looks like one. The shape of the knuckle guard. Angle of the hilt. The langets. The blade itself. Lion head is a little more stylized and differently portrayed than I'd expect. But aside from that it's a dead ringer. There were also Hessians fighting for the British in the revolutionary war. Alongside that very interesting date. I mean I'm sure you can see where the mind wants to wander off to.
