Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great looking sword for the price! It is the cavalry officer's style saber illustrated on page 463 of the great cavalry and artillery saber book by John Thillmann. It is officially listed as a British pattern 1822 cavalry officer's saber. There were several of these swords utilized by both sides of the Civil War. This one has a great looking full-length blade with the maker's mark of the firm of W. Walschied of Solingen, Germany on the back of the blade. Walschied made many higher quality edged weapons such as this in the Civil War era. On the other side of the blade it has the "IRON PROOF" in the center. This is a proof marking that is a way to show that the blade is made of high quality metal that would cut iron. The iron guard is in fine shape without any bends or dents. On the handle of the sword it has the original sharkskin grip intact with a pleasing look. Wound around the grip it has some of the spring style copper wire intact with a couple of turns of the flaking wire remaining. The sword is accompanied by the original metal scabbard. The scabbard has both of the mounts, and rings intact as well as the throat and drag. This is a great looking cavalry officer's saber for the price.
