Civil War Staff and Field Officer Sword Model 1850 Lovely Etched Blade
This is a good example of an U. Staff and Field Officer's Sword, Model 1850. It is mounted with a blade that measures 28 3/4 inches in length which remains in good condition with just some minor surface oxidation spots but with all of the beautiful etching still wonderfully present. The very nice brass guard is designed with intricately detailed pierced work that includes an "US" as well as floral motifs and remains nice and tight with a beautiful aged patina now developed. The leather covered carved wooden hilt reflects surface wear to the leather and the twisted wire wire wrap is now missing, however the hilt does remain healthy and tight. Overall measuring 35 3/8 inches in length. The scabbard has been lost along the way. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items.
