Very nice example with nice maker’s mark on ricasso. Nice semi-bright blade measures 30.25”. Original leather ricasso washer intact. Very nice grip with very sound leather over wood grip wrapped with tight twisted brass wire. No scabbard. Hilt with nice patina with some original gilt finish shining through.

On April 24, 1862 the City of New Orleans fell, thus ending Dufilho sales to the Confederate government and the end of private sales of his swords.  [ss]
