Click on an image to enlarge

Here is a very pretty sword for the price! This is the sword officially referred to as the U.S. model 1860 staff & field officer's sword. This name is a little misleading since almost all of the swords of this pattern were made in the late 1800's. This one was probably made about 1890 or so. It has the very nicely etched blade that is full-length. At the base of the blade it has the maker's mark of the famous "MC Lilley Co. Columbus, O.". Just down the blade from the maker's mark it has the beautiful letter "US" etched into the blade. It has a nice color to the brass of the hand guard and pommel cap. The hand guard has the beautiful Union eagle on the clam shell side of the guard. On the back side it has the clam shell design that has the button to allow it to fold down so it won't stick in the soldier's side. The original grip is remaining with 100% of the original sharkskin grip and the entire double twist copper winding holding it in place. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard that is complete and has a very nice look all over. The scabbard still retains a fine amount of the original plating from the factory. This is a pretty sword for the price of a U.S. buckle costs these days.
