Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a sword that you seldom find and even more scarce is finding one in beautiful condition. This is it! It is a fine, authentic Palmetto Model 1840 Cavalry Saber, manufactured by William Glaze, Columbia, South Carolina. It was made under contract for the State of South Carolina about 1852. The reverse ricasso of the blade is marked with the correct script Columbia, SC mark. A very few examples of this sword have turned up with William Glaze & Co. marked on the opposite ricasso. However, that is the exception, not the rule. Most are marked as this one is, with the Columbia location marking on the reverse ricasso. Often not mentioned, are the correct inspection marks, which are found on the bottom of the guard. If you at this one, you can see the original Palmetto inspection mark "PECK" stamped on the bottom of the guard. This sword has a beautiful original leather wrap and double twist brass wire. The scabbard has a gorgeous attic color all over. The blade is a pretty gray tone with no chipping along the blade edge. It has the ancient pitting here and there on the blade which gives it character. The brass guard and pommel have a very pleasant nut brown patina. While these swords were originally made under contract for the State of South Carolina, and collectors have always considered them to be Confederate. As South Carolina troops folded into the Confederate Army, so did the swords. 9 out of 10 of these swords that you encounter are not original but this one is 100% authentic and in beautiful shape. This is as nice as you could ever hope for on one of these scarce sword.
