This is a very nice example of a War-Time U. Civil War Cavalry Saber Sword, Model 1860. It is mounted with a blade that measures 34 3/4 inches in length. The blade is uncleaned in its condition with a deep rich aged patina now developed and continues to wear markings which includes the AMES logo on one side which is a little faded and U.
1864 on the other side. The brass guard remains very nice as well with an equally lovely aged patina and frames a very nice original healthy leather wrapped hilt that still wears its original twisted wire wrap securely in place. The metal scabbard although is missing its throat piece, does remain in good serviceable condition as well. Overall measuring 42 3/4 inches in length.
