Click on an image to enlarge
Wow! What a cool Confederate sword! This is the classic pattern of Confederate short artillery sword. These were patterned after the gladiator style sword. Since the 1830's the U.S. Government had made a sword of this pattern that was officially known as the model 1832 U.S. artillery short sword. When the Civil War broke out many of the Southern arsenals produced their versions of that sword. This is one of those Confederate manufactured swords. There are a few obvious differences between these Confederate swords and the Union made swords. The blade on the Confederate sword is made with the single fuller groove and the Union sword will have three on each side. The handle on the Union made sword will have rivets holding the blade in place and the Confederate made sword will only be peened at the top of the pommel. The handle is made of cast brass and has the fish scale style grip which is similar to the Union made pieces. This one is a beautiful and classic example of the Confederate workmanship. The sword measures 24 inches overall with 18 of those inches being the blade. The blade has a pretty tone all over with a nice look with the edge having some old service nicks. The brass that composes the handle is in wonderful shape and has a fantastic untouched attic color to the metal. You can see the casting flaws in the brass. The Confederates needed the weapon more than they needed perfection so they sent it into services, blemishes and all. The blade is loose in the handle but won't come out o you don't have to worry. This is a great looking Confederate gladiator style artillery short sword that any collector would love to have.
