For sale is a very rare and unusual George Washington double panel engraved statue hilt Sword. The hilt appears to be bronze and is in the form of George Washington with the American flag draped over his shoulder and around his back that serves as the guard for the hilt. He is wearing military uniform, and the hilt is very heavy. The blade measures approximately 28 inches and is double panel engraved with the scene of a cavalry battle on the blade.There is a maker mark that says C. Hart & Co Philadelphia on both sides of the blade. There is no scabbard that came with the sword. Engraving is in good shape and there is no pitting evident on the blade.
The bronze spacer or guard between the hilt and the sword is a little loose. Probably had a leather spacer that was there that is missing. I do not know the exact age of the sword but it appears that its probably Civil War era.Thanks for looking and check out my other items.
