Click on an image to enlarge
This is a neat and affordable artifact excavated in a Civil War campsite. This is the brass, throat piece from the scabbard for a short pattern artillery sword. These swords were officially known as the US model 1832 short artillery sword. They look very similar to the Roman gladiator swords. The scabbards were constructed of brass and leather. As you can see this one still retain some of the original leather. The brass has the original stud on the front side and the back is present but separated. The piece comes nicely displayed in a 6 by 8 inch Riker style display box with a cloth lining. The verbal history that accompanied this piece is that it was recovered near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which was the site of the battle of Stones River.
