Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Now this is a rare beauty to behold! This is a very hard to find Mexican-American War era M1832 General Staff Officer’s sword, which shows definite signs of being used. The only thing more uncommon than this sword is the information on them so bear with us.

The General Staff Officer’s sword was issued to officers of the ranks Colonel and above. There are very similar models of this sword that were issued to junior officers and non commissioned officers. The sword was carried by all members of staff departments, Field Grade officers of Artillery and Infantry, Company Grade Officers of Light Artillery, Staff Officers and Aides-de-Camp.

The sword is complete, but as stated does show signs of heavy use and wear. The blade is tarnished to the point where you can no longer see the etching on the blade. The grip is no longer tight to the blade and has a very slight wobble to it and the metallic thread wrapping around the grip has started to unravel slightly. Other than those two discrepancies this is one beautiful sword. The blade length is 32” and has a total length of approximately 39”. The scabbard included IS NOT original to the sword and is paired with it just for the sake of keeping the blade covered and to help its preservation.

This sword is a welcomed addition to any edged weapon collector out there.

Specifications:

Overall length: 39”
Blade length: 32”
