IMPORT MODEL 1840 CAVALRY SABER WITH SCABBARD

$350.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 913-52

This M-1840 cavalry saber is an original example of the older, heavy “dragoon” style sword. Blade measures 35” long, 1 ¼” wide at the hilt with a 26 ½” long fuller and 16” long narrow fuller. There are no maker’s marks on this sword. The thick, flat spine of the blade is typical of the 1840. The blade surface is dark with scattered areas of light pitting. Blade edge has no nicks.

The cast brass hilt is typical of cavalry sword hilts with a symmetrical two-branch guard integrated into the knucklebow. The hilt is slightly loose. The original leather washer is missing. Grips are worn showing original cord utilized under the leather wrap. About four wraps of original twisted wire also remain. All brass is dark.

Steel scabbard is in excellent condition and exhibits a uniform dark (almost black) patina overall. A few very minor dents to scabbard and no wear on the drag. Mounts are tight and strong, as are the iron rings. The drag is unmarked. Throat is riveted which is a trait of most import swords.

This is an honest M1840 cavalry saber that is worn and tired, but has a decent blade, good matching scabbard, and is priced right. A perfect starter for a beginning collector or will look great on any wall.  [jet]
