Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice authentic and classic model 1840 Civil War cavalry saber often known to collectors as the "Wristbreaker" cavalry saber. These swords were often carried by soldiers on both sides of the Civil War. The sword has a full-length blade with a pleasing look to the metal. The edge of the blade has just a couple of shallow nicks and displays superbly. At the base of the blade where it meets the guard it still retains the original scalloped design leather washer intact. Most of the time this is missing but this one is present. The brass on the guard and pommel are complete with a fine dark tone all over. The handle is worn down to the wood and has a wonderful ancient tone. It still retains the twisted copper wire around the wood. On the back of the blade's base is the maker's mark of "SHEBLE & FISHER PHIALDa". The firm of Sheble and Fisher were one of the premiere Civil War retailers and were located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is the sword style known to collectors as the "Wristbreaker" because of the massive size and quality construction. The sword is missing the scabbard but displays well and is priced accordingly.
