Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an original cavalry saber from just after the Civil War. This is the French model 1822 cavalry saber and is so marked along the spine of the blade. It has the clear arsenal mark from the famous French Arsenal, Chatternault as well as the 1844 production date. This model is what out U.S. Model 1840 cavalry saber known as the "Wristbreaker" was based on. The blade is full-length at 36 inches in length and has an attractive battleship gray color all over. At the base of the blade, it has the proof markings still partially visible. The brass of the hand guard and pommel cap have a gorgeous untouched tone to the brass. you can see the French inspection marks on the side of the hand guard. The handle of the sword still retains almost the entire original black leather wrapping as well as the entire double twist brass wire. The sword is accompanied by the metal scabbard and it has the mounts and rings intact as well as the original throat and drag. The sword seats almost all the way down into the scabbard except for the last 1/8th of an inch as you see in one of the images. The scabbard has an ancient look with the dents from service. This is a nice displaying sword that doesn't cost thousands!
