What a great piece of Virginia history! This is the sword that collectors refer to as the Virginia Manufactory sword. These were initially made by the state of Virginia so they wouldn't have to rely on the North or foreign markets for weapons. They were initially produced in the early part of the 1800’s. They have a very distinctive iron guard and backstrap. It has the massively long blade that measures 35 inches in overall length. The blade has double Fuller's on each side of the long sweeping blade as you can see in the pictures. The sword is completely unmarked. The iron hand guard has the beautiful classic lines of the Virginia made cavalry saber. The backstrap is still present and holding the parts together. The backstrap is the rounded style that lets us know this is the 3rd model of cavalry saber made by Virginia. The grip of the sword is in wonderful untouched condition and as you can see it displays quite well. The leather has an ancient look all over and it has the entire single strand brass wire remaining. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard. Because of the size and curve these scabbards rarely survive. This one is in very nice shape. It has the original throat intact that includes the stud on the side that goes into the frog of the over-the-shoulder sling at one time. Many of these swords were pressed into Confederate service during the Civil War. On the other end of the scabbard it has the reinforcing drag intact as well. It is entirely likely that it was used by one of the Confederates fighting in the Virginia area. Only about 10,000 of these Virginia Manufactory swords were produced and this is your chance to own a real one. You won't have to worry about upgrading this beauty!
