1780" Cavalry sword, WYATT marked
It's been sometime since I have resumed researching this sword, I don't believe I have posted it here yet, if I have then maybe someone has seen a similar one since?
I bought the sword at a Philadelphia auction. The blade on the sword is well made 36" long, good taper, width swells near clipped point. Balance is 5 3/4" from hilt. Has a stamped in marking on guard and scabbard mouth A/57, suggesting an issue troopers sword. The ricasso is stamped "WYATT".
The leather around the scabbard mouth is white buff.
The slotted hilt may date the sword to the 1780's.
I have not seen another. The Royal Armouries are said to have approx. 200 similar swords but I have no way to view them except for flying across the ocean.
I've posted this sword on Richards sword forum and SFI.
Hopefully someone can shed some light on this current mystery.

Your previous thread here. I note you have added to a VikingSword thread on baskethilts as well as your other thread there at VS.

I hope you come across something new. It is a nice sword.
