This heavy cavalry saber, commonly referred to as Model 1840 wrist breaker was one of the military sabers used by U.S. mounted forces before and during the Civil War. Made by Gebruder Weyersberg of Solingen. The single-edged blade has a pronounced curved with a flat wide back. Saber blade measures 36” long with an integral wide fuller 29” long and a narrow fuller some 21” long. Blade is marked with a rooster on the ricasso. The hefty steel blade exhibits a semi-bright finish with scattered areas of dark spotting. Blade has no nicks. Leather washer remains in place.

The heavy, two-branch brass hilt is in very good condition and exhibits a dark patina. Black bridle leather grips are well worn and show some loss. The double twisted copper wire is wound around the handle.  Saber has a brass pommel cap in the Phrygian design. The pommel cap and knuckle guard are unmarked.

Hefty iron scabbard has been painted silver.  Both sword mounts are tight and retain the suspension rings.  The thick drag shows some surface rust.

This imported M1840 saber is typical of Civil War Cavalry swords.  [jet[ph:L]
