    XIII French Briquet Sword (Napoleonic Era)

    Dug this amazing relic Saturday. It's my understanding that the South traded cotton for these so they were commonly carried by confederate soldiers during the American Civil War. Other CW relics have surfaced in the general area so its not out of the realm of possibilities that this very sword was carried by a rebel soldier. 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.

    Whooo yeah. Ça c’est bon and then Lagniappe ol' boy! Save some for the rest of us, lol.

    You guys sure sound like you have a blast down there. I spent a whole lotta years down on the bayou working the oil patches with many a coon asses. The people I met down there are the salt of the earth - just good folk.

    Great find. Keep at it with them other Cane Bandits and let the good times roll.

    Cheers

    Man, I will NEVER forget you coming up to me and saying that you thought you'd dug a sword! UNBELIEVABLE find there! And to think that you also dug an 1813 One Real along with it, wow! My finds were pretty underwhelming--but I'm glad I got to see those amazing finds come up!!

    Congrats buddy, that's one FINE relic. How many people can say that they dug a sword!! 25 years digging and I sure can't!
