This is a fine looking original Civil War officer’s sword & scabbard. This is the nice version that looks like the standard foot officer’s sword except in the floral brass hand guard it has the small "US” letters like the staff & field officer’s swords. This pattern is tougher to find than the standard staff officer's swords of the day. The blade has the very nice etching on each side including the large "US” letters on the reverse. The blade has a gray tone all over and as you can see in the pictures. At the base of the blade it has the maker's mark of the firm of Henry Sauerbier of Newark, New Jersey. The brass of the guard and pommel cap has a wonderful color to the brass. The original handle is intact with a fine look to the leather grip but the double strand of brass wire is still present as well. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard. The scabbard is the version that has the leather body with the brass mounts and drag. When you look at the drag, you see that when the leather shrunk slightly the tip went through the brass. This is a fine looking original etched blade Civil War staff & field officer's sword with a cool look all over.
