Sorry to post this so late on this all but have been trying to access the forum for sometime now and hadn't been ablle to get to the forum until today for some reason.  

I got out for a hunt on new years eve and my very last find of 2011 was this short sword.  The sword measures approx. 20" long with 12 1/2" blade.  I woulod think decorative or ceremonial piece but still a very neat find that was shown on pg 41 of the Jan/Feb. 2012 issue of relic hunter magazine and also won Minelabs success stories find of the month contest for Jan. 2012.

You can go to minelab.com to read the story or here is a direct link to the story about finding the sword.

The very last thing I would've ever thought that I would dig out of a private yard in NW Ohio.
