Any thoughts on this sabre with Masonic markings I think possibly American militia,mounted infantry/artillery Officers but could it be British Yeomanry Officers ?.

I've never seen blade decoration like that before, most unusual and quite naïve. Very very unlikely to be a British yeomanry sword.

Jim McDougall is a personal friend of mine and a great scholar but I can’t agree with him on this occasion regarding the sword being British yeomanry. I would think it is almost certainly American as ‘Hotspur’ seems to think.

PS, but then again, I can be just as wrong as the next man ....

G'day Guys,

I too think this sabre is most likely American, especially with that style of grip carving.

Cheers,
Bryce
