Here is a nice looking sword that has a neat history. This is the iron guarded saber from the 1840's. This sword would've been used by mounted artillery. It has the full-length 32 inch blade with the single fuller on each side. At The sword is completely unmarked. The handguard and backstrap of the sword are constructed of iron and the guard has the classic "P" shaped design. The handle of the sword still retains the original wooden core as well as approximately 98% of the leather wrapping. This pattern of sword never had any wire on the handle. The sword is accompanied by the original metal scabbard. The scabbard has the original mounts and rings intact as well as the original throat and drag. One thing that makes this sword extra special is that it is accompanied by a Xerox copy of the original sales receipt when it was sold in October of 1842. The receipt shows that it was sold by the famous firm of Storms of New York City. When the sword was new in 1842, they cost $3.50 and the pair of pistols cost $2.50. The receipt states it was sold to Mr. A.M. Davis. The records show that Alfred Merritt Davis served with the New York State Horse Artillery. One of the documents state that even though they were artillery, they were to be outfitted like cavalry. Xerox copies of the sales receipt as well as some history on the regiment will accompany the sword at no extra charge.
