Manufactured: New York;  Maker: Tiffany & Co / PDL;  Year: Civil War;  Model: M 1860 Naval Officer Cutlass ; Size: 30.25;  Condition: VG

High grade naval officer’s cutlass from Tiffany & Co New York.  It was debated by collectors that this version was post-war manufactured until an example recently arrived at auction with a Civil War dated inscription. This sword is rare (one of only 2 known) and in excellent condition.

Cup guard is gilt brass with blued steel for the cup.  Instead of rivets it has slotted screws.  Grip wrap is sharkskin with gilt wire and in excellent condition.  Blade is thin, only .75 inches wide.  Obverse ricasso is etched with Tiffany & Co. New York and the blade has a panel etched with foliate - spread winged eagle - foliate.  Reverse ricasso is stamped PDL - for Paul D. Luneschloss whose Solingen firm made blades for Tiffany.  Blade etch is also a panel with foliate - stand of arms - foliate. Scabbard is blued steel with gilt throat, mounts and drag. Scabbard body has one small pea size dent on the obverse side by the middle mount.

Overall this is a rare by type, maker and condition.
