I purchased this knife/sword at the estate sale of the curator of the Smithsonian.
I am at a loss to document it, and am looking for advice.
It is a very large heavy weapon, marked on one side
And on the other
I have attached pictures.... trying to get my mind around this one....I put a quater beside it for comparison
Thanks for all the help, I picked up a bunch of stuff there...from Rev War, 1812 and CW....
