Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice used example of the principal cavalry saber used in the U.S. Civil War of 1860-1865. It has brass mounts with wood with leather wrapped sword grip but bound brass wire is nearly all absent.
The curved blade is marked on one side-
One the other side it is marked-
C.E.W. stands for Charles E. Wilson who was a Union Government Inspector AMES sword factory during the period of the Civil War. The markings are all clear but can be seen on the blade's ricasso.
The original leather blade washer is still intact and the brass hand guard exhibits a nice patina and has not been cleaned nor has this sword ever been taken apart.
The saber comes with the original all AMES manufactured steel-curved scabbard complete with both mounting rings. The toe of the scabbard is inspector stamped D.E.M.
Offered in very fine collector's condition, original Civil War Cavalry Swords are getting harder and harder to find every year!
