Original U.S. Model 1860 Staff and Field Officer Sword Named to Major Charles Jarvis 9th Vermont Infantry with Documents
Orignal Item: one-of-a-kind. A very nice named U.S. Model 1860 Staff and Field Officer sword marker marked by WM Read & Sons Boston Mass. Approximate 30" long blade, with a fine leather ray skin grip with brass wire warp and excellent patina to the brass knuckle guard, cross guard, and pommel. Overall this sword is in very nice condition with a bright nickel blade. Shows some wear on scabbard. However, the best aspect is that this sword is named to a known officer in the Union that fought and was killed in the U.S. Civil War.
The scabbard is finely engraved:
