This specimen is a fine example of a Confederate Cavalry Sabre whose maker is unknown. It is a close copy of the U.S.Cavalry Model 1860. This particular sabre has a tapering cone grip, brown leather covered and wound with a single strand of untwisted steel wire. Approximately 50% of the leather remains on the grip and the wire is complete. The two-branched guard and "high-hat" pommel cap are made of brass. They both have a nice semi polished patina. The guard has approximately 3/16 inch of lateral play on the blade and is missing the leather washer. The curved blade is 37 inches long, with rounded back and a single stopped fuller on either side. The point is very slightly rounded with minor surface rust. The blade is a dusky gray in color and the edge has no nicks. Over-all length of this weapon is 42 inches. This sword has no scabbard.
