    Item details

    The US M1860 Cavalry Saber was the standard cavalry sword of Union troops during the
    Civil War, along with the heavier M1840 “Old Wrist Breaker”.  Captured examples were
    also frequently used by their Confederate counterparts since their quality generally far
    exceeded that of Confederate-made examples.  It features a single-edged 34 ½" blade
    with double fullers and spear point.  The ricasso is stamped "N.J./US/D.R./1864" on the
    obverse and "AMES MFG. CO./CHICOPEE/MASS" on the reverse.  Blade generally
    smooth and bright with scattered scratches and age staining.  Brass 3-bar guard and
    pommel with dark patina.  Leather wrapped grip with twisted brass wire wrapped grooves
    (leather worn with some losses).  Iron scabbard with twin carry rings, showing pitting and
    oxidation with a bluish-gray color.  Overall length 41", not including scabbard, 42 ½" with
    scabbard.  Good representative example of this iconic cavalry sword carried by New Jersey
    troopers during the Civil War.
