Click on an image to enlarge
In our 25 years of dealing in Civil War artifacts. This is the 1st sword of this pattern we have been able to offer and it is a beauty! This is the pattern that is illustrated on page 94 of John Thillmann's book entitled Civil War Army Swords. He list this version as the model 1834 Non-Regulation Medical Staff Hilt Type and notes that it is possible that this is a engineer sword as well. These were made by the famous Philadelphia company of Horstmann and Sons. It has their maker's label on the back of the top mount of the scabbard. The scabbard is designed with the 2 rings for hanging the sword from the soldier's belt as well as having the stud style attachment on the top mount so the sword could be used with a frog style belt hanger as well. The scabbard is an exceptional condition with the original leather intact. Because the scabbards are so delicate, very few of them survive today. The blade of the sword is full-length at 28 1/2 inches. It has the distinctive triangular shape and this sword is an exceptional condition with a gorgeous light gray tone all over. The handle of this sword is superbly designed with the 2 panels of mother-of-pearl utilized on each side of the grip. The sword has the earned style pommel cap with the cross guard being designed with the turndown back side. This is an exceptional sword from all angles.
