When did closed ports started to appear on the swept hilt rapiers? I have seen rapiers, dated to the late 1600th century, with closed ports, but I guess that the ports are from a later date.

Hello,

AVB Norman traces them back to the late 16th century. One of the earliest examples he found is pictured in this portrait from 1582:
