Original WWII Civil War Era U.S. Navy Model 1852 Officer's Dress Sword with Leather Scabbard

Item Description

Original Item: Only one available. This is a real beauty! It is a very nice U.S. Navy Model 1852 Dress sword, fitted with a very nice 29 inch long pipe back blade, with 2/3 of it with etched decorations. Most of these are nice foliate decoration, including stands of arms with E. PLURIBUS UNUM and U.S.. The sword measures 35 1/2 inches overall, and is contained in a fine leather scabbard that is brass mounted, with knotted rope base fittings for the suspension rings, which are both present. There is also an entire sea serpent wrapped around the bottom mount, the drag. There is a small repair to the leather about 14 inches above the drag.

The sword's hand guard is elaborately molded again with a sea serpent as part of the bow. The grip is wrapped shark skin and is brass wire bound. The part basket is embossed Oak leaves and acorns and displays the letters U.S.N.. The pommel shows an eagle surrounded by 13 Stars. All the brass mounts were originally gold washed or plated and much is still evident after maybe 160/170 years.

In very nice condition this started life as an exceptional Naval Officer's Sword. Ready to display!
