This is a very well made Civil War cavalry officers saber in scabbard. Although this example is completely unmarked the handguard has the distinctive traits of the pattern illustrated on page 286 of the Cavalry and Artillery Saber book by John Thillmann. The sword in the book was sold by the New York firm of Miller and Company. It notes that they were a retailer and importer during the Civil War. The blade is 35 inches in length with the large unmarked ricasso at the base. Generally this large pattern of ricasso denotes being European and manufacture. This would go along with the information that Miller was importing and assembling parts to sell to the US market. The hand guard and pommel Are constructed of beautiful cast brass with fine detail work. The outside of the guard has the branches with the ornate floral and geometric designs which denote the officer quality construction. The quillion of the sword has the upside down Eagle design with the wing tips that continue in design of a floral pattern. There is a shield on the Eagle's chest with the "US" lettering. On the handle of the sword it has the original sharkskin grip that is 95% complete as well as the twisted brass wire wrapping. On the blade side of the handguard, one of the previous owners engraved their social security number. It is mentioned for exactness. The sword is accompanied by the perfectly fitting steel scabbard. The scabbard is complete with both mounts and rings as well as the original throat and drag. This is a great looking original Civil War cavalry officers saber of a tough to find pattern.
