These sabers were made by the Springfield Armory from about 1880 into the 1890’s.

Overall the sword meas. 36.50 inches from point to pommel. Blade is approx. 32.25 inches long with an unstopped central fuller approx. 25.50 inches long. The blade is in very fine shape with minor discoloration and is not marked, as it should be. Also, the blade was never plated and makes this a very scare variation.

Shark skin grip is in excellent condition with a tight twisted wire wrap. Hilt also has brass ferrule at the base of the grip and a brass spine with rounded pommel. Single exaggerated “D” shaped knucklebow is also of brass. Leather washer at the base of the hilt is gone.

Brass mounted steel scabbard has several dents, dings and a slight wave. About 3.00 inches up from the drag is the largest of the dents. Throat, mounts and drag are present and made of plain unadorned brass. [jp]
