Lot 0519
With its brass furniture showing dark mustard patina, with its original leather and wire bound grip, the side branches of the guard have been removed to make the sword more suitable for being used by Confederate soldier, the original D-guard part however bearing multiple markings. With its broad curved large fullered blade meant for most efficient battle action, one side bearing struck marking matching to those on the brass guard. Fare condition with heavy patina and wear consistent with the age, and with its original leather scabbard having large brass mounts en suite to the hilt. Very interesting and unusual example of the weapon used by very poorly supplied Confederate army. Total length in scabbard (when scabbard is present, without scabbard otherwise) - 39", length of the blade - 31"
