$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: E2691

A very nice example of the Model 1860 cavalry saber used during the Civil War. The curved blade is over 35 inches in length. Stamped at the ricasso is “EMERSON / & / SILVER / TRENTON / N.J.”.  Stamped on the obverse is “US / JM / 1864”. The blade is clean. The leather washer is intact.

The brass hilt has two branches and knuckle bow. The pommel is of the Phrygian helmet style and stamped with inspector’s initials. All brass wears a pleasing mellow patina. The leather wrapped grip is in nice condition with light surface wear. The original double twisted brass wire wrap remains tight.

The steel scabbard is dark gray with one small dent, ½”, located about 9” above the drag. It has two iron mounting rings. The drag shows minor wear.

This is a very presentable 1860 cavalry saber.   [jet]
