US M1852 Naval Officer Sword - Super Rare Retailer: Shreve, Stanwood & Co of Boston.  Standard pattern with extra embellishment. Crossed cannon and stack of cannon balls on the back of pommel cap. A very nice naval officer’s sword. What makes this super is the maker, Hoppe and the retailer Shreve, Stanwood & Co of Boston. Hoppe is a rare maker but we have never seen his mark on a Naval Officer sword before. Brass guard has USN ribbon and dolphin head quillion as is standard on this model.  Rich gilt remains of guard. Sharkskin grip and wire wrap is in very good condition.  Blade is lightly etched with remnants of frost.  Obverse etch has beehive - Hoppe stamp / foliate - anchor - union shield / 28 stars in a circle / ship’s rigging with USN pennant.  Reverse has stamped Shreve, Stanwood & Co Boston and etched patterns of eagle on cannon with cannon balls with rays / fouled anchor / USN ribbon / foliate - rope.  Leather scabbard has some crazing but is sound and strong.  Brass throat, mounts and drag have some gilt remaining with a mix of darker patina.
