Original British Seven Years War P-1751 Hanger Sword with Brass Hilt and Patinated Blade

Regular price $1,495.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of a mid 18th Century British Infantryman's "Hanger Sidearm" or Short sword. It is typical of the type used during both the French & Indian War, as well as the American Revolutionary War and Seven Years War. This example has a lovely aged patina overall, especially to the blade, which shows significant staining and oxidation. We have left this in place to preserve the history of the piece, rather than risk damaging it searching for markings.

The brass three branch guard is lovely, showing a lovely mustard patina in many areas, with a more polished look around the handle from handling. The 25 ½ inch long blade is slightly curved with a single narrow fuller down each side near the spine. It shows use and oxidation, and we were not able to locate any markings on the blade. The total length is 30 ¾ inches, and comparison with period examples show that it is completely correct. Overall the condition is very nice with a great aged look.

A lovely example that comes more than ready for further research and display.


Blade length: 25 ½”
Overall length: 30 ¾”
Handguard: 4”L x 4 ½”W
