MODEL 1840 IMPORTED CAVALRY SABER BY W. WALSCHEID, SOLINGEN, PRUSSIA

$650.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: E2259

This Company’s history is very short and does not seem to have extended beyond the Civil War. The only blades known to be made by this firm are the P1822 British cavalry officer’s saber and the M1840 US enlistedman’s and officers sabers. 

The example we offer here is in very good condition. The scabbard has a nice mellow patina with no dings or dents and just the slightest discoloration. The blade itself is clean and bright with very light scattered age spots. The true edge has 3 light nicks. The maker’s mark on the ricasso is poorly struck as is seen on most of the blades made by Walscheid. The mark reads “W. WALSCHEID, SOLINGEN” in two lines. The upper half of the Company name is very light. The grip is in good condition with leather grip and wire wrap. The leather does show some wear in spots and the wood underneath shows through. You have to look close to see it. Leather washer is present below the counterguard. A very nice example.
