This is a very nice example of one of the many import Swords used during the American Civil War Era. This particular Foot Officer Sword is mounted with lovely, unmarked blade which measures 30 3/8 inches in length that remains in very nice original condition with only some minor surface staining.
The gilded brass guard is intricately detailed and has survived in wonderful condition with some of the original gold wash still peeking. It wears a healthy fishskin covered hilt that continues to wear its original twisted wire still tightly in place. The brass fitted leather scabbard reflects age with crackling to the leather finish, nevertheless all the stitching is strongly intact and the scabbard remains in good serviceable condition.Be sure to add me to your favorites list.
