This is a great looking sword! This is the high quality sword that would have been worn by Civil War officers. It was made for a mounted officer in the style has the three branch style hand guard that was usually for a cavalry officer but this one was carried by an Infantry officer. What makes this one really stand out is that it has the branches of the handguard that are massive and made in a floral pattern. These floral designs that let us know it was for an officer. The pommel cap has the matching floral patterns with extra chase work detail. On the handle of the sword it has the original shark skin grip intact. The wire on the sword grip has been expertly restored for display purposes and is mentioned for exactness. The blade is full-length at 34-1/2 inches. It has a pretty light gray tone with the original etching still visible on each side. On the front side of the blade it has Union eagle with the "EPLURIBUS UNUM" motto visible. It also has the floral and patriotic designs to accent the eagle. At the base it has part of the "STAND BY THE UNION" motto. On the back of the blade it has the matching floral and patriotic designs. In the center of the blade it has the matching Union eagle. At the base of the blade it has the maker's mark of the famous Clauberg sword maker in Solingen, Germany. The sword is accompanied by the original high quality scabbard. The scabbard is what makes this one stand out from the other sword you see. It has the ornate brass mounts and rings intact. Accenting the brass mounts it has the copper ornamentations that make the mounts stand out even more. The top mount is engraved in jeweler quality engraving that reads "Presented to / Capt. W. Schilling / by the Members of / Co. C. 4 Regt. / N.Y.S.M.N.G.". On the back of the mount it has the date of "January 12 / 1863" engraved into the brass. The records show that William Schilling enlisted on June 20th 1863 as a Captain in the 4th New York Infantry. They were mustered out on July 24th 1863. This regiment is also known as the 4th New York Heavy Artillery National Guard. When this one left the factory and hit the field of use it would have been a prized and beautiful piece hanging from the soldier's side. This is a great looking sword!
