Dang here are the stars

A pretty sword, for sure.  My Spies thread at SFI might be better labeled and combined with all NY makers/retailers of the early 19th century.  Indeed I have that set in a dedicated Spies folder (with Wolfe as well) and separate from my dedicated Salter folder.  I just yesterday backed up over 20,000 image files related to swords and knives.  I am amazed at myself I can find anything in the haystack but with a method to my madness, I eventually remember which barn the baling wire is in.

A preview of the pretty Spies.  I have a plainer example in the folder as well.

That set culled in 2010.

 

Enough for now and maybe we really do need a bigger NY thread.

OK, the Spies stars.  Are we seeing a trend yet?

So, lots of questions still remain  Stuff like the earliest etched pipe-back blades in American trim and German ferrules on Ames militia swords.  These and other esoteric qualities of many examples will drive me nuts (in the end).  Wait, I'm already crazy!

 

Cheers
