What makes this one special is the inscription that is on the back side of the top mount of the scabbard. In jeweler quality lettering it reads. A Graff/by the members/of C Co 65th Regt/N. Andrew Graff enlisted in the 65th Regiment New York National Guard as a 30-day volunteer and was commissioned a First Lieutenant in Company B. He appears to have mustered out with the rest of the regiment in July of that year, with very little information available as to the remainder of his military career.
The date and rank stated on the presentation implies he may have remained in the army for some time. This is a great looking Civil War staff and field officer's sword in scabbard from New York.
