Old sword found in Lake Ontario

Recommended Posts

I just came across an old sword that I found as a teen in Lake Ontario. I forgot I had it and just curious if anyone has any ideas of the date and authenticity of it. For all I know it may be a toy or replica that some threw in the lake. The handle seems to be solid brass so I don't think it was a toy. I know nothing about swords but thought someone may recognize the style and have an approximate age.

I've always been interested in sunken ships and such so all I did was a Bing image search for old swords and got lucky. From what i can gather the Remington Rolling Block rifle was a popular gun back in the day. My best guess is that someone had it aboard a vessel that sank. Here's a bit more about the rifle it came off of.
