This is a nice solid original Civil War cavalry saber. This is the model 1860 cavalry saber referred to by collectors as the light cavalry because of the lighter weight and more streamlined design compared to the earlier model 1840 cavalry saber. On the base of the front of the blade are the clear stampings of the production date of "1864" along with the date, it has the "US" mark and the "D.F.M." inspector initials. These are the inspector initials of Dexter F. Mossman who inspected for the government from 1862 until 1864. On the back of the blade you can still see the maker's mark of "EMERSON & SILVER" and "TRENTON, N.J.". Emerson made many quality edged weapons like this one during the American Civil War. The blade is full-length with a nice looking well worn color. The complete original scabbard accompanies the sword. The scabbard has an attractive darker tone to the metal. The guard and pommel cap have an attractive tone to the brass. What makes this one interesting is on the top of the sword. When you look at the pommel cap you see that there is a clearly visible bend. These things were constructed for combat and it took a huge force to bend it like this. It makes you wonder if the cavalryman's horse stepped on the grip. On the top of the pommel cap are the matching inspector initials of "DFM". The original leather is intact and in fine shape with the wire being intact as well and it has a beautiful appearance. This is a very attractive sword for your Civil War display.
