This Rare and Unusual Confederate Cavalry Saber is thought by some authorities to be a Tennessee or Texas made sword. At any rate this pattern is rarely encountered and this is a fine, complete, virtually untouched example.

 

The form of the hilt is the most unusual and visually striking feature of this sword. It has long, sweeping lines. The pommel is upswept at the rear instead of downward like most other American swords. Also note the unusual form of the quillon and the overall thinness of the crossguard. Metal scabbard is typical of other Confederate swords having copper/brass mounting rings and throat. The most unusual feature of the scabbard is the very large blade of the drag. The blade is consistent in construction to other known examples, having an unusual very rudimentary stopped fuller.

 

Condition of this sword is attic mint. Hilt has no bends or repairs. Leather wrap and single strand copper wire are 100% original and complete. 1/2 of original leather washer is present and there is no play. Scabbard is virtually dent free. The ring of the upper mount is an iron replacement from its time of use. 33 inch blade with old sharpening marks and patina staining.
