Click on an image to enlarge
This sword has a gorgeous blade! This is the classic U.S. model 1872 cavalry saber. It is designed like the Civil War sword but is more slender in size all the way around. It ahs the classic cavalry style hand guard with the three branches constructed of brass. It has the original brass pommel cap holding the handle together. The grip itself is made with the wooden core and it has the original sharkskin still nicely around the wooden core. It has the beautiful original double strand brass wire wrapped around the grip and it has a pleasing look. The double twist wire is flanked on each side by the single strand wire. The blade is full-length at 33-3/4ths inches. It still retains a superb amount of the original etching on each side of the blade. The front side has the beautiful eagle and on the back has the clear "US" marking. On the front side, it has the soldier's name etched into the blade. It has the name "R.B. Harper" but I don't know who or where he served. At the base of the blade it has the stamped retailer's marking of the New York firm of Ridabock & Company. On the other side of the blade, it has the marking that states it was made in Frame for Ridabock to sell. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard that fits like a glove. It has the throat and drag intact as well as both of the rings and mounts. There are even two leather sword hangers attached. It still retains a fine amount of the original factory nickel finish. This is a great looking 1872 pattern cavalry saber.
