Original U.S. War of 1812 Officer's Eagle Head Sword with Ivory Grip and Leather Scabbard

Item Description

Original item: Only One Available. The War of 1812 was a very strange War. The Americans invaded Canada, the British retaliated and burned the White House, Peace was declared and then the British lost the Battle of New Orleans because no one realized the War was over!

Here we have a very smart original Eagle Headed and ivory gripped U.S. Officer's sword from the 1812 War period. The sword is all brass mounted with a standard "P" hand guard and a a very nice "open with tongue" Eagle pommel. The grip is fluted ivory or bone, an is still tight to the tang, though there is a small chip near the ferrule. The hand guard is also somewhat loose, and the original gilding on the brass is all but gone.

Overall it is 33 inches long, with a 28 inch long engraved single edge curved blade. Each side has a fuller towards the spine, with some light engraving on the first 1/3 of the blade. The old inlay is still visible in places, with a large section where the original "fire blue" finish is still present. There is also some light staining and surface pitting on the last half of the blade, as well as near the cross guard, but nothing major.

This smart sword comes together with its original brass mounted leather scabbard with two hanging rings, one of which still has the original spring clip attached. Hard to find in this condition especially being complete with its original Scabbard.
