Civil War Period Medical Staff Officers Sword
|( ID: a100 )|
A nice mid 19th C. American Medical Staff Officers sword. This example has the elliptical cross section blade that dates it as earlier than the more usual post Civil War period staff officers swords. The gilt brass handle and scabbard mounts are in nice condition as is the silver MS on one side of the crossguard. The blade has some age darkening throughout the lower third of the blade but the etching can still be seen on both sides of the blade. A nice original Medical staff sword. OAL Length is 36", 30" blade.
