The 26 inch blade is in very good condition, with a bright finish with just a bit of oxidation staining in places. The edge is a bit rough do to some light denting. Brass bowl hand guard showing signs of it's very rare ORIGINAL tin plating, surrounding a very nice grooved wooden grip. These were NEVER bound in brass wire, and a lot of the original paint is present. Cutlass measures 32" in overall length.

This classic cutlass comes complete with it's original early style heavy leather scabbard secured at rear by a series of brass/copper washered rivets covering it's full length. There never were bottom or throat mounts to these scabbards. Only a brass stud mounted in the leather about 3" down from the top of the scabbard which was intended for use with a large leather belt frog also of leather.

A great and hard to find example in such condition of a Civil War U.S. Naval Cutlass with scabbard.
