Nice original Civil War Model 1840 Import Cavalry Sword. The sword is full length at 41", with a 35 1/4" bright blade that is 1 1/4" wide at ricasso. The only markings are a "73" on the knuckle bow, and a "73" on the scabbard drag. The blade has a stopped fuller, and is bright with visible 'brush marks" above ricasso. There are minor "flea bites" on the edge. The grip is an old re-wrap using leather and twisted brass wire. The quillion has been down, a trait often seen in battle used swords. The scabbard is sound with one anti rattle dent. The sword is basically untouched, except for the grip, and should clean to a higher grade. Very Good
