Here is a cool group of items from a Civil War soldier from Pennsylvania. These items came from the estate of Charles Henry Miller. The records show that Miller had a full and varied service throughout the Civil War . He enlisted on September 11th 1861 in the 48th Pennsylvania Infantry and served with them until May 3rd 1862. He then mustered into the 16th Pennsylvania Cavalry on September 6th 1862. He served with the 16th Cavalry until he was promoted into the Adjutant General Department and served with them until September 19th 1865. He rose through the ranks from Sergeant all the way to Captain with a Brevet Promotion to Major. The grouping includes two swords that are attributed to him. The first is the classic model 1860 cavalry saber. It was made by the Emerson & Silver firm of Trenton, New Jersey and is so marked at the base of the blade. The date of production is stamped at the base and it could either be 1864 or 1862. The leather grip is intact with the majority of the double twist brass wire wrapping. The other sword is a beautiful original Civil War foot officer's sword in the original scabbard. This is the model 1850 which is correct for Civil War officers. It has the full-length blade with a beautiful amount of the original factory etching. The handle is intact with the entire Sharkskin grip remaining. The scabbard is also in fine condition. The swords are accompanied by four beautiful frames containing one image of Miller in uniform and three documents. The image shows miller wearing his officer's frock coat and has a foot officer's sword by his side but not this sword. Two of the other documents are Civil War dated commission papers from the state of Pennsylvania. The last and largest is his member ship certificate from the Grand Army of the Republic which was the organization for Union veterans of the Civil War. The largest frame measures 23 inches by 19-1/2 inches in overall size. You get all four frames and the 2 swords for $2,950.
