CIVIL WAR M 1850 STAFF AND FIELD UNMARKED SAUERBIER CAVALRY OFFICER SWORD C 1861. This is a fine looking original Civil War officers sword. This is the nice version that has the floral brass hand guard which lets us know it was for a cavalry officer.
This one was made with the etching on sides of the blade. The blade has a gorgeous tone all over and as you can see in the pictures it displays beautifully. You can see a fantastic amount of the etching on both sides and it still has the factory frosting.
The brass of the guard and pommel cap has a wonderful color to the brass with some of the original gold gilding down in the protected areas. The original sharkskin grip handle is intact with a beautiful look to the skin and it has 2 strands of the double twist brass wire present as well as the single strands that would have flanked the twisted wire at one time.
