Title Union sergeant's sword
Nationality American
Period c 1860
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the classic Federal NCO's sword of the US Civil War, carried by all sergeants in infantry units and possibly supply outfits. The blade is marked at the forte 'R&C'. It could be an imported German blade or a US production.

The hilt is copied from a French original and is made of cast brass in three parts: pommel, grip and knuckle-bow/guard.

The knuckle bow is slightly distorted, but generally the piece is in excellent shape for its age and it has never been dismantled. The blade measures 32.5" and has five small edge nicks. It also has some minor age staining, mostly polished out.

I received the sword and belt this afternoon. Always a bit of a risk buying this sort of thing online but I'm very pleased with the quality of the sword and scabbard...
