Hey-

I just purchased this sword...(Instead of the one of Garth's that had been discussed earlier)

Am I correct in thinking this is one of the earliest types? It is very similar to Plates 142,143 in Spanish Military Weapons in colonial....

and it is very similar to the below sword listed as around the same time....

Interestingly enough, it is a GIO KENGT as well...


It won't kill me if it's a mid 1700s but I would like it to be 1680s Happy

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Brad
