Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice original Civil War cavalry saber. This is the model 1860 cavalry saber referred to by collectors as the light cavalry because of the lighter weight and more streamlined design compared to the earlier model 1840 cavalry saber. On the base of the front of the blade are the stampings of the production date of "1864"along with the "US" mark and the "C.E.W." inspector initials for Charles E. Wilson. On the back of the blade you can still see the partial maker's mark of "EMERSON & SILVER" and "TRENTON, N.J.". Emerson made many quality edged weapons like this one during the American Civil War. The blade is full-length with a nice looking metal. On the top of the pommel cap are the inspector initials of "JM" for Joseph Maggs. The original leather is intact on the handle. The double twisted brass wire on the handle has been lost to the ages. The grip has an attractive look. This is a very attractive sword for your Civil War display that doesn't cost thousands.
