This is a nice example of an U. Civil War Artillery Sword Saber, Model 1840. It is mounted with a curved blade that measures 32 1/8 inches in length. The blade remains in very nice condition however the markings are very weak and difficult to make out.
The brass guard also remains very nice in its condition with a rich aged patina now developed and frames a leather wrapped hilt which although is weathered does remain healthy in its condition with only a portion of its twisted brass wire wrap still present. The large metal scabbard remains in very nice in its condition and fits the blade well.
Overall measuring 39 5/8 inches in length. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items. Civil War Artillery Sword Saber Model 1840" is in sale since Friday, March 27, 2020.
