Late Spanish colonial period officer's eagle-headed sword, late 1800s. 937 grams, 32" long, 26-1/2" blade. Used by Spanish officers in the tropics to clear jungle brush, these swords originally came from Germany (faint maker's mark of LUCKHAUS & GUNTHER / REMSCHEID on flat single-edged machete-style blade along with other faint marks) and many were captured as war trophies after the Spanish American War, this one with nickel silver mounts, checkered horn grip, sheathed in brown leather scabbard with nickel mounts. Scabbard shows signs of wear, blade is somewhat rusty with chips on blade. With photo-certificate.
