Rapier Blade Fragment
Bent distal fragment of rapier. This sword probably did not belong to the regular soldier at Los Adaes -they would have carried a shorter, wider sword. The sergeant, officers, or governor might have carried a rapier. The width of this fragment is 1.28 cm. Object conservation by Jay C. Blaine.
