This is a very nice example of one of the many import Swords used during the American Civil War Era. This particular Model 1850 Foot Officer Sword is mounted with a lovely multi-grooved plain blade that measures 29 1/4 inches in length. The unmarked blade remains in superb original condition with just some light surface oxidation at the extreme tip. The beautiful brass guard has survived in outstanding condition and is intricately detailed with cut out floral design framing a very healthy carved horn hilt that continues to wear its original twisted wire still securely in place. The brass fitted leather scabbard has also survived in very nice original condition with only a couple of working dings to the top and base fittings but with all the stitching still tightly intact.Overall measuring 35 1/2 inches in length.
