Lot of 12 steel rapier blades, some conserved. 8 lb total, 46" long. While we have had several individual specimens of these interesting items in previous sales, this is the first time we have been able to offer a wholesale lot, each sword typically thin and a dark rusty color but intact and sharp, several with markings in the blood-groove (including one with INRI for Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews), a few stabilized with lacquer but most in need of long-term conservation. Recovered from: 1681 Fleet off Porto Bello, Panama
