A nice example of the classic "wrist breaker" used before and during the Civil War.

The curved blade is over 35” in length. Stamped at the ricasso is “C. HAMMOND”.  There are no other marks on the sword. The blade is clean with a pleasing pewter patina. There are a few small edge nicks. The leather washer remains in place.

The brass hilt has two branches and knuckle bow. The pommel is of the Phrygian helmet style. All brass has dark patina. The leather wrapped grip is in excellent condition as well as the twisted wire wrap.

The steel scabbard is a very dark brown color with only a couple of very small dings and some scattered surface pitting. It has two large iron mounting rings. The drag shows wear along the bottom edge.

Little is known of the Charles Hammond company. They were from Boston and moved to Philadelphia by the time of the Civil War. Their swords are known to be of slightly lesser quality than the more prominent makers.

This is a nice, complete “Wrist breaker” from a small Philadelphia maker!   [jet]
