Sanskrit based script on a blade

Postby bayo-wolf » Thu 25 Feb 2010 9:45 pm

Here is another blade I have with an unknown script on it. In this case it appears to be something Sanskrit based. I have ruled out Devangari. Do any of you recognize the script? The blade is a bit hard to date, but I think we can place it about 1750 to 1850. I would tend toward the latter end of the range.
