This is an original 1850 Collins & Co Foot Officer Sword made in Hartford, Conn. The excellent grip is a little loose to the blade and needs a new washer but the engraving is 100% better than my picture skills.
Very little aging on the blade and never sharpened. The scabbard is complete but has a break in the bottom third part of the leather. It is still complete with all the brass hardware.
An excellent sword for your collection. The item "1850 Collins Fancy Foot Officer Sword from Civil War" is in sale since Monday, December 04, 2017.
