Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a genuine M1850 Marine Corps sword with a stunning near mint blade. This is a post Civil War Marine Corp M1850 Staff NCO sword, which dates to the 1870s. The blade appears to have the correct marks for the Civil War, but the scabbard is from a later period. We made that determination because the scabbard is leather covered steel.

The guard and the scabbard have the matching serial number No 28. The guard and pommel cap are tight. The grip and wire are original with 95% of the bright black leather remaining. The original blade washer has kept the 29 1/2" blade tight. The blade is in mint condition with 100% original frosting, and W.H. Horstmann marked.

The scabbard is the SNCO design with the frog carry stud. It is leather covered steel. Historically, these scabbards did not hold up well and the leather often is falling off or missing. This one retains 20% of the leather. However, the steel body and brass fittings are intact.

Overall an exceptionally rare sword with a near mint blade that appears to date from the Civil War but due to the construction of the scabbard we believe dates to the 1870s.
