Here is a sword that you don't see offered every day! It is the classic model 1860 cavalry saber that most people associate with the Civil War. This one has the tougher to find maker mark of the firm of Henry Boker in Solingen Germany. As they state in Thillmann's book this Henry Boker is believed to be the brother of New York retailer Herman Boker. He adds that they didn't sell military weapons after the Civil War. Germany firms like Boker made many of the swords used by soldiers on both sides of the Civil War but the majority of them were model 1840 cavalry sabers. Boker however made the model 1860 swords such as this one. It has the 1860 style blade but the guard looks most like it is an 1840. This one has the full-length blade with the clear Boker maker mark still visible at the base of the blade front. The brass guard and pommel cap have a beautiful rich patina all over. On the handle of the sword it has some of the original leather wrapping intact as well as the majority double strand brass wire wrap with a couple of repairs. The sword is missing the original scabbard as they so often are. This is a nice attractive model 1860 Civil War cavalry saber made by Henry Boker.
