M1850 FOOT OFFICER’S SWORD

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-2204

This unmarked non-regulation Foot Officer’s sword is typical of the style produced by various manufacturers during the Civil War.

The blade of the Foot Officer sword is so slightly curved that it looks straight at first glance. It is single-edged with a false edge extending back about nine inches from the point. There is a wide deep fuller which runs from the ricasso to the beginning of the false edge. The blade is undecorated and unmarked. The spine of the blade is also unmarked. The blade has an untouched dark gray color, with several nicks on the edges.

The grip is made of a ribbed wood handle covered with a fine black leather. The leather shows wear and the double-twist wire is missing.

The brass guard has a cut-out floral design and quillion. Knuckle bow connects to the pommel which also has cast floral designs. Knuckle guard is slightly loose allowing it to wobble. All brass pieces have a dark patina. No scabbard. This sword looks like it just came out of an old attic.   [jet] [ph:L]
