1864 Dated Cavalry Saber - Inventory Number: SWO 186 / SOLD
Light Cavalry Saber - Model 1860
The classic cavalry troopers' saber with original scabbard. This example exhibits a wonderful even patina on all metal parts, the brass guard which originally had three branches was field modified by the removal of the outer branch. The original leather wire grip is sound and retains a small portion of the original brass twisted wire. The blade is very good with a bold stamped ricasso: “C. Roby Chelmsford, Mass.” The opposite side is marked “U.S. / 1864 / A. G. M.” The scabbard has a matching even dark patina with the scabbard exhibiting a rattle dent toward the drag. The drag exhibits wear and is now semi-elliptical. Classic example of a used cavalryman’s weapon.
