Pierced half-basket hilted sword by unknown zoom

Pierced half-basket hilted sword

Owned by Rear-Admiral C.R. Adams, USN. The hilt consists of a pierced half-basket guard, with inset oak leaves and acorns with a small plaque bearing the letters 'U.S.N.' The knuckle-bow and upturned quillon are in the form of dolphins. A capped pommel extends about a third of the way down the back of the grip, which lacks a back-piece. The top of the cap has an eagle surrounded by a circlet of thirteen stars in relief. The white fish-skin grip broadens slightly from the pommel. A swordknot is attached.
