Fire blue, which a lot of it intact, is  there around 1/2 of the blade with gilded floral modifs & large US of A on one side of the blade & on the other side floral & military modifs & in floral ribbon "B & J Cooper N.York". A lot of the bright finish is intact on the forward part of the blade. There is, at the ricasso. a small amount of dark rusting on both sides, probably from being in the leather scabbard. The brass guard, ferrule, knucklebow & Eaglehead pommel & backstrap have scattered amounts of orignal gilding intact. Bone grip with checkering in good condition. The highly detail Eaglehead also has some gilding intact. The knucklebow is a little loose & has the original ring intact.The original leather scabbard in good, supple condition with brass throat & drag in which has a good amount of original gilding intact.  The leather on the scabbard has a design going up & down the length of the scabbard. B& J Cooper of New York are listed being in business from 1803-1831. An ad that was in the NY Herald on Nov. 7, 1804 had them listed as gunmakers from Birmingham & were located at 19 Partition St. NY. They probably were the importers & retailers of this sword. This Eaglehead pommel sword has some characteristics of the Ketland Swords of Birmingham who sent many swords, for the American market, over here. A unique either Artillery or Infantry Officers sword with the rare US of A etchings & the J&B Cooper N.York markings.
