Here is an original pre-Civil War officer’s sword. This is the style known to collectors as the Eagle pommel sword. Obviously they get their name from the brass pommel cap that is on the end of the grip holding the sword together. This one has the original eagle pommel intact as well as the brass hand guard. The handle is made of mother of pearl and displays well from both sides. The sword side of the grip has the floral style piece that is often referred to a being a Widmann of Philadelphia trait. In the wonderful book by Stuart Mowbray on Eagle Pommel Swords on age 190 and 191 he described this pattern of eagle as being the "F.W. Widmann Eagle , Type VI". They are distinctive because of the hand guard and clam shell design and there are numerous variations on this theme. The hand guard itself has the coat of arms design in the bow. The hand guard clam shell has the U.S. style patriotic eagle with the shield in front of her. The blade is full length at 29 inches. It has a gray tone all over and you can see the original engraving on the blade. These swords were quite popular with officers during the 1850’s. Some of them saw continued service into the Civil War. It is accompanied by the original brass scabbard. The scabbard is the highly ornate style with the detailed engraving on the front side of the scabbard. It has both of the rings intact as well as the stud on the top if the soldier wanted to use it with an over-the-shoulder sling. The original throat is intact at the top of the scabbard. This is great looking sword all the way around.
