17th Century French and Indian War to Revolutionary War Era Use, Impressively Designed and Highly Detailed Iron Halberd Head, Fine or better.

Impressively designed Ornate 17th century Iron Halberd Head with a sharp knife-edged spike tip and griffin wing-like decorations near the base. Overall, measuring 14.9 long and 5 at the widest point. This was a very lethal long-reach weapon of the period in the hands of a trained operator. The iron surface has a nice natural age patina with engraved highly decorative patterns and decorations on most of its lower surfaces, including the base of the spike. The surfaces may have been moderately brushed long in the past to remove surface crustiness, creating a pleasing appearance which stands out well for display.
