We're very pleased to be offering one of the rarest and most desirable items we have ever had the pleasure to find, an original Revolutionary War "Potter" Horseman's Sabre, one of only three known to exist with its complete leather scabbard. You can look at all the books and talk to all the collectors and so-called "experts" about Rev War edged weapons, but there is only one bonafide Rev- War sabre that we know was ordered by the Continental Congress and recorded as being there, and that is "The Potter". The Potter Horsemans Sabre is THE "Blue Chip" Revolutionary War Edged Weapon, much the same as Ames Swords are to the Civil War and Colt Single Actions are to the Western enthusiast. This may well be a once in a lifetime opportunity to own such a historic, museum quality item from the Revolutionary War. I was fortunate to have purchased this item from the late William Guthman through a mutual friend. Bill was best known nationally for his work on PBS's Antiques Roadshow, and this was one of many items featured on a TV program that highlighted some of Bill's collection last year. It was prized by Bill as it is by me, but I can't afford to keep everything I'd like to. If you would like the opportunity to own one of the best pieces of early American Weaponry ever offered, this may be the only one you'll get. All three complete Potters are very similar in condition and all three are impressive with massive 35" long blades that are nearly 2" wide. The grip is 6 1/2" long!!! I have placed a Colt 5" Pocket revolver next to the sabre to help scale the size of the massive sabre. Several Potters were reproduced to scale and featured in the movie "The Patriot" starring Mel Gibson. Have a question about your artifact?
