Original U.S. Model 1830 Officer's Eagle Head Sword with Ivory Grip and Leather Scabbard

Item Description

Original item: Only One Available.  Here we have a very smart original Eagle Headed and ivory gripped U.S. Officer's sword, typical of the type made in the 1830s and later. The sword is all brass mounted with a standard "D" hand guard and a a very nice "closed mouth" Eagle pommel. The grip is fluted ivory or bone, and has split down the middle on both sides, so it is loose on the tang. The hand guard is also somewhat loose, and the original gilding on the brass is all but gone.

Overall it is 32 inches long, with a 27 1/4 inch long etched single edged straight blade.

Each side has a broad fuller towards the spine that extends half way down the blade, with some very nice etching on the first 1/3 of the blade, as well as on the spine.  There is also some light staining in areas, but nothing major. It really is a quite nice blade. There are also initials engraved on one side of the blade, while the opposite side reads Philadelphia in script.

This smart sword comes together with its original brass mounted leather scabbard with two hanging rings. Hard to find in this condition especially being complete with its original Scabbard.
