Arming Sword Dated: circa 1530-50 There’s a pair of faceted arms carrying at their head an inverted U-shaped bar ridged made en suite with the quillon terminals. The hilt of the sword is a variation of the Type 16 discussed in A.V.B. Norman, The Rapier and Small-Sword 1460-1820, London 1980, pp. 80-82. A sword with a very closely comparable hilt is alternatively given a Spanish late 15th century attribution by Oakeshott. Type XVIIIc
