Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an attractive sword at an affordable price. It is an original officer's pattern sword known to collectors as the Eagle Head. The name is simple to figure out because of the eagle head style pommel cap at the top of the sword. This one has a full-length 28-1/2 inch blade with the etching on each side. It also has the remnants of the original blue and gold coloring on each side from the factory. Most of the time this is missing but it is still visible on this one. The lower part of the etching of the blade on the front side has the W.H. Horstmann maker's mark of "W.H. H&S." and the Philadelphia location. On the back side of the blade it has the King's head trademark stamping. This is the marking that lets us know that Horstmann imported the sword from the Weyersberg firm in Solingen. The guard and pommel cap are made of brass and they have a wonderful honey color patina all over. On the handle it has the bone material that has a nice look. The clamshell of the hand guard has the armor design in the center. The sword is accompanied by the original brass scabbard. The scabbard has a pleasing golden tone with the engraving on the front side. The back of the scabbard has the "HORSTMANN" stamped mark as well as the "423" model designation. The scabbard is made with the double hanging rings and it also has the stud on the top so it could be used with a frog style attachment system, whatever the soldier preferred. This is a cool looking sword & scabbard from the Horstmann Company.
