This is a well marked original Civil War cavalry saber. This is the model 1860 pattern that was the most carried style during the Civil War. This one has a full-length blade with a nice dove gray color to the steel. At the base of the front of the blade are the production date of 1864 along with the "US” mark and the inspector initials of "J.M.”. This is the inspector initials of John Maggs who inspected weapons for the U.S. Government. On the back of the blade is the vividly clear maker’s mark of the Mansfield & Lamb Company of Forrestdale, Rhode Island. Mansfield & Lamb was one of the premier makers of Civil War cavalry saber and as you can see they made a quality product. The guard and pommel cap have a great attic color to the brass. The leather on the grip and the double strand brass wire has been expertly restored for display purposes. The handle has a attractive look. The sword is accompanied by a nice original metal scabbard. Both of the mounts are present as well as the original throat and drag and they are in nice shape. The scabbard was painted silver long ago and it retains the majority of the silver. This is a very well marked Civil War cavalry saber with 1864 date markings.
