I love the look of this sword! This sword has that look that stands out. It has the thick coat of patina that looks like it was brought home from the war and hung on the wall untouched for all the years. This sword is a very finely crafted high grade officers sword that would've been worn by a well-to-do Union officer. The blade of the sword is still full-length at 32 inches. It is one of the high-quality blades that were manufactured in silage in, Germany by the firm of W. Clauberg and has their maker's Mark as well as the knight in armor trademark at the base of the blade. Each side of the blade has the etching that has the traces of the gold wash applied to bring out the detail. The front side of the blade has the Union Eagle with the "E Pluribus Unum" national motto on the ribbon coming from her beak. The back side of the blade has the beautiful ornate "US" lettering in the middle. The guard of the sword as well as the pommel cap are also a very high quality manufacture. In addition to the fine casting you can see that each of the pieces have the extra hand chisel work to add more detail to each piece. What makes it really stand out is the large Union eagle that is perched on the top of the pommel cap. The applied brass eagle is striking in appearance. The handle of the sword is original and still beautifully intact and is constructed of a wooden core cover by high quality sharkskin. Over the sharkskin is the original double twist copper wire that is flanked on each side by the single strand of brass wire. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard that is also constructed with superb quality. The body of the scabbard is made of steel with the heavy mounts and drag constructed of brass. The original throat is still intact at the top of the scabbard. As you can see, this sort displays beautifully from all angles. It is truly a Civil War work of art.
