Hello I wonder if anyone can help identify a sword it was found buried under my grandfathers house about 38 years ago and that's the only information I have .

Hello, I see you got some pictures here!

At first sight it doesn't inspire me much.

But beter details could help.

The blade, and different sights of the handle.

cheers

Welcome to the GMIC!  We're all interested amateur's here, so no guarantees we can help, but many of us are willing to try.

Odd sword.  The style is almost 'cutlass', given the heavy pommel and guard, but with a straight blade - certainly not anything modern in terms of style.  The large pommel is rather unusual and, from what little I can see, the workmanship on the guard is quite crude.  I think the grip is disks of leather.  All that suggests to me a home made piece, but I may be very wrong.  More photos, showing details and any markings at all would make a definite identification more likely.
