Here is an attractive sword at an affordable price. It is an original officer’s pattern sword known to collectors as the Eagle Head. The name is simple to figure out because of the eagle head style pommel cap at the top of the sword. This one has a full-length 29-1/2 inch blade with traces of the ornate etching on each side. I have has this same style sword before that was the maker’s mark from the desirable Philadelphia maker of W.H. Horstmann & Sons. This one doesn't have that marking but is likely to have been made by them as well. The guard and pommel cap are made of brass and they have traces of the original gold wash down in the protected areas. On the handle it has the bone material that has a nice look with one small repair. The clamshell of the hand guard has the American eagle design in the center. The sword is accompanied by an attractive scabbard. The scabbard has both of the rings intact as well as the stud on the top for attaching the scabbard to a frog style holder. The original throat and drag of the scabbard are still present as well. This is an attractive officer’s sword that displays beautifully and won’t break the bank.
