MODEL 1840 NCO SWORD BY EMERSON & SILVER

$495.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 953-01

This is a Model 1840 N.C.O. sword. In very good overall condition, these swords were carried by Federal non-commissioned officers as a sign of authority in the ranks. Sword is approximately 39” long and has a metal scabbard. The 32” long straight sword blade is bright with no nicks. The ricasso bears a strong Emerson & Silver, Trenton, NJ stamp on one side and “U.S. / DFM / 1863” on the other. The sword’s brass hilt features a simulated wire-wrap grip, a double shell-style guard, and a single-branch knucklebow.  Inspector’s initials (DFM) are again found on the knucklebow. Brass has an uncleaned, mellow bronze patina. Original leather washer remains.

Metal scabbard is in fine condition, bearing a very dark patina and fitted with brass drag and throat. There are a few dents in the drag and the inspector’s initials are again found on that piece. Belt hook remains on throat piece.

This is a very nice Civil War NCO sword and scabbard.   [jet]
