The sword might have been stolen from a Fitchburg home between 1976 and 1980, Mazzarella said, adding that the person who took it is no longer alive.

"I'm not 100% sure that it was stolen or taken without authorization but I believe it was," Mazzarella wrote on Facebook.

Mazzarella added that there is an inscription written on the blade, but that it can't be read without a magnifying glass.
