Plain blade with unique guard
QUESTION: I collect a number of swords. They aren't replicas but I have come across a very odd sword. It has no markings and if it did they seem to have been destroyed on purpose. The blade looks brand new (in comparison to the hilt). I am fairly certain the it was pieced together at separate times. The hilt is comprised of what appears to be a bronze hand guard and pommel, both in a very deteriorated state. The grip is a silver color and worn. Could you possibly have any clue as to what it is?
Very hard without a picture or further information as to what style of sword it is. (Medieval, Sabre, Katana, etc). I am guessing it is a sabre of some description, but a pic would make a world of difference... ;-)
Sorry if I sound funny, just need more info.
