1.) Non regulation officers sword. (Reproduction) Originally bought from Dixie Gun works. I bought it used on the AC but it is in excellent condition, like new. Copied from the French infantry officer’s saber of 1821, this sword was popular among Union officers during the Civil War. The slightly curved blade is single edged with a rounded back, etched on the obverse with the arms of the United States and a ribbon bearing the motto “E Pluribus Unum.” The reverse is etched with floral scrolls and the letters “U.S.;” ricasso is stamped “W. CLAUBER/ A SOLINGEN” and the back of the blade is marked “IRON PROOF.” There is a ferrule at the base of the grips and a metal backstrap above the twisted wire wrapped, leather covered wood grip. Has metal scabbard with sling ring included. 37 ¾” overall, blade 32 1/4:”, 1” wide at the hilt. Great for a Federal officers impression. Asking $125.00 shipped.
2.) Confederate Foot Officers Sword (Reproduction). Also known as the Memphis Novelty Works sword after the company owned by Thomas Leech and Charles Rigdon of Memphis, TN, this sword could be either a foot officer's or staff officer's in terms of style. The blade is made of tempered carbon steel. The brass guard features floral decorations and the raised letters "CS" cast in a small oval cast on the reverse top of the counter guard. The grip is wood covered with black leather and wrapped with twisted wire. Comes with blued steel scabbard with brass plain fittings. Blade length: 30", Overall length: 38". I purchased this new from Legendary Arms and used it once at 150th Manassas. Brand new and in excellent condition. A really nice sword. Asking $150.00 shipped.
3.) US model 1840 artillery saber (original) Late model. Blade is marked "LR 1863" and hand guard stamped "49". Leather and twisted wire covering the grip are original and in excellent condition. Overall the saber is in amazing condition. The saber was purchased at The Horse Soldier in Gettysburg and came without a scabbard. The scabbard pictured is an excellent reproduction that was purchased at Regimental Quartermaster the same day I bought the saber. Asking $500 shipped OBO.
