Item #25934

Original era manufacture. This pattern was the result of a design change in November 1812 after the initial 1000, of the 5000 weapons ordered were completed. In January of 1813 the new design was repeated and the order was increased to 10,000. A few of the swords were inspected by Luther Sage (LS proof)in 1817.

Our example is one of the Sage inspected swords with his very clear inspectors initials over the US proof on the obverse ricasso. The polished steel blade measures 34 inches in length with a clipped point. The blade has been lightly sharpened and presents a mellow steel patina. Simple stirrup type steel guard with a ribbed wooden grip which was once covered in leather. There is a nice old repair which can be seen on the grip pommel with iron nails holding fragments of the leather covering in place. Simple sheet steel scabbard with two carrying rings and a black painted finish. One of the scabbard screws is missing. Great old American Cavalry weapon which no doubt saw years of service.
