Carried by sergeants during the French and Indian War, American Revolution, and Napoleonic Wars, this style halberd was largely used as a guide for troops to identify an NCO and to form up for the march or battle deployment. They were also carried by those who protected the regiment's colors and there are stories of these halberds being used in savage hand-to-hand fighting to avoid a regiment's biggest disgrace; the loss of its colors. Forged of iron in the typical English fashion, with the conical-section ferrule being pierced with a slot, through which the one-piece axe blade is passed and held in place by friction or a small forge weld. Broad leaf-shaped 9 1/8" thrusting blade threaded to the ferrule, as often found. Axe blade with slightly angled cutting edge and large down-turned rear beak. Shortened side straps, attached with epoxy to a section of a later spiral twist wood shaft. Length of metal 17 ½", overall 48". Dark brown patina to all metal surfaces.
