Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very scarce version of Civil War cavalry saber. This is the elusive model 1840/60 cavalry saber that was manufactured by the firm of Emerson and Silver of Trenton, New Jersey. You see the model 1860 by Emerson quite often but as they mention in the sword book "... Finding and Emerson and Silver made with an 1840 blade is a rare occurrence." This one has the handguard, pommel and grip of the model 1860 but the blade is the 1840 style. has the very attractive full-length blade with a dove gray color. At the base of the blade on the back side it has the Emerson and Silver maker's Mark with the production location of Trenton New Jersey. On the front side of the blade it has the "NJ" stamping that lets us know it was purchased by the state of New Jersey somewhere along the line. In Thillmann sword book he states that Emerson had contracts for the state of New Jersey in November 1863 and November 1864 and provided a total of 2704 sabers for $6 each. We have seen them before with the NJ marking but this is only the 2nd model 1840 that we have been able to offer. The brass of the hand guard has a thick ancient untouched look with a very pleasing color. The original leather wrap is mostly intact on the grip as well as the entire double twist brass wire. The sword is missing the scabbard. This is an extremely tough to find model 1840/60 cavalry saber by the famous firm of Emerson and Silver.
