This is a very cool Civil War naval militia sword! This one was made by the famous company of William H. Horstmann and sons of Philadelphia. At the base of the full-length blade that measures 29 inches it has the etching from the Horstmann Company. The the sword blade has 10 inches of etching on each side with one side having the floral and patriotic designs. The backside has the floral designs on top and bottom and in the center it has a large anchor etched to represent the Navy. It has the cast brass cross guard that has the floral pattern on each side. The original grip is intact and is made of bone with the straight line ribs on each side. The pommel is the style that has the design of a knight's head of armor. This pattern of sword is illustrated as figure 2.84 on page 61 in the benchmark book by Peter Tuite entitled U.S. Naval Officers; Their Swords & Dirks. The sword is accompanied by the original all brass scabbard. The scabbard has both of the rings intact as well as the stud on the side of the scabbard to allow for use with an over the shoulder style sling. On the back of the scabbard it has the the correct in matching Horstmann maker Mark stamped into the brass. Above the Horstmann mark it has the model number "427" stamped into the brass. This is a very interesting sword that displays beautifully as you can see.
