What a great piece of Virginia history! This is the sword that collectors refer to as the Virginia Manufactory sword. These were initially made by the state of Virginia so they wouldn't have to rely on the North or foreign markets for weapons. They were initially produced in the early part of the 1800's. They have a very distinctive iron guard and backstrap. It has the blade that measures 34 inches in overall length. The blade has double Fuller's on each side of the long sweeping blade as you can see in the pictures. The sword is completely unmarked. When you look at the edge of the blade, you see numerous nicks from use so it makes you wonder what service the sword saw. The iron hand guard has the beautiful classic lines of the Virginia made cavalry saber. The backstrap is still present and holding the parts together. The backstrap is the rounded style that lets us know this is the 2nd model of cavalry saber made by Virginia. The grip of the sword is in wonderful untouched condition. It is well worn down to the majority of the wooden core and as you can see it displays quite well. A single portion of one of the turns of the original brass wire on the handle is still hanging on. Many of these swords were pressed into Confederate service during the Civil War. It is entirely likely that it was used by one of the Confederates fighting in the Virginia area. Only about 10,000 of these Virginia Manufactory swords were produced and this is your chance to own a real one.
