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.
    Here's a short video-

    Here are pictures of the sword handle after dug and then cleaned.

    Shanegalang i was lucky enough to find a complete one in my house in France its a Briquet sabre(french for lighter) nicknamed after the shape of his guard who look like a lighter from the era mine is in perfect condition and was hidden behind a timber under the roof.....the scabbard was made of leather and brass mine was ready to be put back in action on the blade you can read:


    MANFUFACTURE ROYALE D ARMES DE CHATELLERAULT.......they were used like machete i have been told ........more than for real close combat

    Once again congrats

    It was found in a sugar cane field. Makes me wonder if someone was cutting cane with it. Will never know. Can you post a picture of yours? I would love to see it and the scabbard as well! Cheers, Shane

    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.
