Click on an image to enlarge

This is a well marked original Civil War cavalry saber. This is the model 1860 pattern that was the most carried style during the Civil War. This one has a full-length blade with a nice dove gray color to the steel. At the base of the front of the blade are the production date of 1864 along with the "US" mark and the inspector initials of "J.M.". This is the inspector initials of John Maggs who inspected weapons for the U.S. Government. On the back of the blade is the vividly clear maker's mark of the Mansfield & Lamb Company of Forrestdale, Rhode Island. Mansfield & Lamb was one of the premier makers of Civil War cavalry saber and as you can see they made a quality product. There are some use chips along the edge the blade. The guard and pommel cap have a great attic color to the brass. On the top of the pommel it has the correct and matching "J.M." Inspector's initials still partially visible. The original grip is intact and the original double strand brass wire with a fine look. The handle has a gorgeous untouched look with the majority of the leather remaining. The sword is accompanied by a nice original metal scabbard. Both of the mounts are present as well as the original throat and drag and they are in nice shape. On the side of the scabbard drag, it has the remnants of the matching and correct "JM" inspector initials still partially visible. This is a very well marked Civil War cavalry saber with 1864 date markings.
