ID:	1369257I have an almost identical sword with sheath that was bought at a junk shop back in the early 1960's. it's marked "Artilleria F Naci nail Toledo". There are two small letters or numbers next to the F that I can't read, also a letter is between the I and n that's too lightly struck to read.
    I tried to post pictures but couldn't figure out how. Any help?

    Stellar find Shane! Sword relics are really cool but they just don't turn up very often. That one-piece grip you posted is a beauty. Several years back I found a grip to a model 1767 Grenadier Briquet that turned up here in Maryland.

    1767 Grenadiers Sword Grip from American Revolution

    Its terrific that the pommel appears intact on your grip and that you also found a piece of the guard. Hopefully more pieces will turn up nearby. It sure makes me wonder how your sword ended up where it was, and what life it lived. With my sword grip I concluded that after its service in the American Revolution, the sword was taken back home by a veteran and used for many years around the farm. It was eventually relegated to the trash pit and that's where I found it. I figure the pommel (found nearby) had broken off under the weight of something heavy, perhaps a horse, after the sword was trashed.

    It's my understanding that here in the south they traded the French cotton for these swords. There is evidence of CW activity in the area it was found so I'm guessing either a confederate soldier had it or a veteran discarded it in a trash pit. I am convinced the other pieces will surface at some point. We are in soy bean, sugar cane rotating crop fields and they plow really deep down here. Subsequent hunts will turn more pieces up, I'm confident. HH!

    Shanegalang,
    There are 26 ribs on the grip. Note, there is a molded line just above and below the ribs that I did not count as ribs. They are squared off where as the ribs are rounded.

I also dug a piece that fits and is likely a piece of the knuckle guard. I will be returning to try to find more pieces as they would have the markings to get a definitive date.
