Click on an image to enlarge
This one is a knockout! It is an original very high grade officer's sword & scabbard for the state of Massachusetts. This beauty has an overall length of 38 1/2 inches with the blade making up 30 of those inches. This exceptionally high grade Militia Officer’s sword is likely for a General Officer and dates from the Mexican War to the Civil War timeframe. The blade has a narrow central fuller running nearly the length of the blade. The blade is etched over 2/3 of its length with various foliate, patriotic & military motifs, including a large spread wing Union eagle. It is adorned with a heavily gold gilded hilt with a downturned guard that bears the Massachusetts state seal surrounded by a wreath of leaves & flourishes. It has the simple but beautiful cruciform guard with star embellished ends. The chained guard joins the artistically rendered knight’s head pommel just below the visor. The detail on the pommel is quite exceptional accentuating the scaled armor & decorated helm with feathered crest. It has the original and beautiful hexagonal silver grip with deeply cast oak leaves & acorns on both sides. The sword is accompanied by the original high grade scabbard. The gilded brass scabbard with various foliate etching and a large spray of arms with liberty cap. The upper engraved feature is the most interesting, being an eagle atop a shield engraved with the Massachusetts "bent arm & sword". The blade shows some original factory polish with scattered light staining. The gold finish on the hilt is nearly complete, as is the silver finish on the grip. The scabbard retains 97% of original gilding and the engraving detail is superb. This one is beautiful from all angles.
