Click on an image to enlarge
This is a classic original Civil War naval officer's sword. Officially known as the U.S. model 1852 naval officer's sword, this is the style that was worn by naval officers during the Civil War. The blade is full length and is etched on each side with patriotic and other designs. The etching on the back of the blade has anchor towards the middle of the blade and on down towards the tip it has the flags and spears with "USN" on the banner. On the front side of the blade it has the vividly clear "W.H. HORSTMANN & SONS PHILADELPHIA" etching. On the back side of the blade from the Horstmann mark it has the king's head marking that lets us know that it was made for Horstmann in Solingen, Germany. Many quality edged weapons were made in Europe for private sale to well to do Union officers. It then has the anchor design with the stand of arms above and the flag with the "USN" in the center of the flag. The guard and pommel cap have always stood apart from the normal Civil War officer's sword. It has the bold "USN" in the basket of the guard and the quillion is made like a serpent's head. At the very top of the pommel cap it has the droop wing style naval eagle. This one would have originally had the sharkskin grip on the handle and it only has traces remaining. It has all of the spring style wire wrapped around the wooden core. The sword is missing the original scabbard. This is a cool looking original Civil War naval officer's sword that doesn't cost a fortune.
