Spanish colonial period officer's transitional rapier-sword, early 1700s. 580 grams, 34" overall length. A transitional piece--somewhere between the long blade of the earlier rapier and the shorter, lighter blade of a small sword--comprised of an all-steel hilt, simple, turned-wood grip, and pierced-through decorations. A Toledo (Spain) armorer's mark on both sides of blade ensures its provenance. Overall good condition with age toning all over. With photo-certificate.
