This is the pattern known as the US model 1840 foot officers sword. This is the version that is illustrated and described on pages 117 through 130 of the Civil War Army Sword book by John Thillmann. They were produced by high-quality edged weapons makers for sale to well-to-do infantry officers. This is one that was made like the one on page 125and 126. It was manufactured by the famous swordmaker, Gebruder, Weyersburg in Solingen, Germany. The crafted some gorgeous swords for the American market like this one. The sword is finally crafted with the full-length blade that measures 31-1/2 inches. At the base of the blade, it has the king's head trademark of the Weyersburg firm. The front of the blade has the beautiful floral pattern intricate engraving that matches the back side. In the center of the blade it has the bold "US" lettering. On the back of the blade it has the Union Eagle in the center with the banner with a national motto of "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The handguard is constructed similarly to the model 1840 non-commissioned officers sword, except it is more ornately designed. It has the brass spiral grip with the simulated wire cast into the brass. It has the large urn style pommel cap with the tall capstan rivet. This particular example is accompanied by the original scabbard. The scabbard is made of brass and leather. It is also the version that is constructed with the stud on the band of the top mount so it could be used with the frog style attachment for the soldier's belt or shoulder sling. This is a tough to find US model 1840 foot officers sword with a gorgeous etched blade. You might not see another one of these offered anytime soon, so don't miss this one.
