H69 - M1860 Cavalry Saber

797.50
This is the light cavalry saber that was introduced in 1859 and 1860 to replace the old, heavier M1840 ?wrist breaker.? This one is faintly marked Emerson and Silver/Trenton NJ and the reverse US / 1861. Emerson and Silver was under government contract to produce 30,000 swords between August 1862 and September 1865. The overall condition of this one is extremely good. The blade retains @ 80% of its original luster. The scabbard is in excellent shape and has been given an even brass-like finish so that it perfectly matches the hilt. (This is not a coating of paint such as was often found on GAR specimens). The grip and wire are very good and original to the sword. A most handsome and displayable sword and scabbard.
