S-bar hilted sword
S-bar hilted sword. The hilt consists of a gilt, pierced, half-basket guard bearing at the front, the cypher 'G R' surmounted by a crown and in an oval space in the obverse side, a foul anchor. There is a flat, plain pommel and back-piece, a lightly striated ferrule at the top of the grip and a prominent tang button. The combination of the general's guard and foul anchor suggests that the sword belonged to a senior officer in the Marines.
