Click on an image to enlarge

Here is an original pre-Civil War officer's sword. This is the style known to collectors as the Eagle pommel sword. Obviously they get their name from the brass pommel cap that is on the end of the grip holding the sword together. This one has the original eagle pommel intact as well as the brass hand guard. The handle is made of mother of pearl and displays well from both sides. The sword side of the grip has the floral style piece that is often referred to a being a Widmann of Philadelphia trait. In the wonderful book by Stuart Mowbray on Eagle Pommel Swords he described this pattern of eagle as being the Widmann Eagle. They have the hand guard and clam shell design and there are numerous variations on this theme. The hand guard itself has the ornate designs in the bow. The hand guard clam shell has the U.S. style patriotic eagle with the shield in front of her. The blade is full length at 31-1/4th inches. It has a brownish gray tone all over. These swords were quite popular with officers during the 1850's. Some of them saw continued service into the Civil War. It is accompanied by the original brass scabbard. The scabbard is the unadorned style that has both of the rings intact as well as the stud on the top if the soldier wanted to use it with an over-the-shoulder sling. The original throat is missing but the original drag is intact at the bottom of the scabbard. This is great looking sword all the way around.
