This is a great looking original Civil War foot officer’s sword! This is the classic style that was carried by line officers during the Civil War. This one has a full-length 32-1/2 inch blade. This blade is a beautiful high quality design. It even has some of the original gold wash remaining in the protected areas. It has the original floral and patriotic etching on each side of the blade. You can still see a superb amount of the etching. The front of the blade has the Droop wing style eagle with the "E PLURIBUS UNUM" motto in the banner above. The back side of the blade has the highly stylized "US" in the center. At the base of the back side of the blade you can see the knight logo and can read the maker’s mark of the famous firm of Clauberg of Solingen, Germany. They made many of the high quality edged weapons of the Civil War that were imported for private purchase by the well-to-do Northern soldiers. The hand guard has the brass with the floral pattern that denotes the foot officer pattern. The brass of the guard and pommel cap each has a beautiful look and they are the version that has the extra detail a fine sword like this should have. On the handle of the sword it has the original sharkskin grip intact as well as the strands of the double twist brass wrapping. The sword is accompanied by the beautiful, ornate original scabbard. The scabbard is the leather version with the brass furniture. The original throat, rings, mounts and drag are intact with the ornate detail work on each piece. You can tell that this sword is a step or two above the one you usually encounter. One thing that makes this one stand out from other is the jeweler quality engraving on the back of the top mount.It proudly reads "Presented by / Co. H. 5th V.R. / to / Capt. Charles Knorr / of / Newark N.J. / July 23rd 1871". Captain Charles A. Knorr is listed in New Jersey as early as 1866 as belonging to Company H of the 5th New Jersey National Guard. He is also listed in an 1867 New Jersey Adjutant Generals annual report as belonging to the "5th Regiment (Veteran)". Not much is known about his Civil War record, only that he enlisted as a corporal (date unknown) and saw service in the 5th Light Artillery. This is a beautiful sword with a cool identification.
