Click on an image to enlarge
This is a fine looking original Civil War staff & field officer's sword. This is the classic style that was worn by high ranking officers of the Civil War. These swords are easily distinguished from the foot officer's swords because of the large "US" lettering in the basket of the hand guard. This one has a golden honey patina color to the brass parts. The blade is full-length at 32 inches. The blade still retains some light but visible etching on each side of the blade. The front side of the blade has the military and floral designs that include a shield and flags. At the base of the back of the blade it has the remnants of the etched maker mark of the Emerson & Silver Company of Trenton, New Jersey. As you can see with this sword they made a quality piece for the well-to-do Union officer's to use. On the back side it has the "US" in the center that is flanked by floral and patriotic designs. On the handle of the sword it has had the original sharkskin grip intact as well as all of the brass wire. This is the high quality version that has the sharkskin grip instead of leather. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard. This is the scabbard style that is made of fine quality cast and engraved brass and metal. The brass has a beautiful medium color all over except for the top mount that has been polished bright. The scabbard still has the original drag, mounts and rings and throat are still present and accounted for. This is a fine looking Civil War staff & field officer's sword & scabbard from the famous firm of Emerson & Silver of Trenton, New Jersey.
