44PG302/EU2114-55, F-430, S-III

Basket/Pommel/Blade Section1650-1670. Probably from an English saber.  Most of the blade is missing.  The three upper tips approach, but are not attached to, the pommel.  

Recovered  from Jordan's Journey near Hopewell in Prince George County.  This example was in extremely poor condition when recovered; required extensive conservation; and portions of the basket are reconstructed with wax.
