Nearly Pristine Model 1852 Civil War U.S. Naval Sword
|( ID: as371 )|
A fine example of the Model 1852 U.S. Naval Officers sword. This example retains much of the gilt throughout the handle and the scabbard fittings. The blade is in 95% condition with all of the frosting very crisp and clear. The sharkskin handle is in very nice condition with no losses and the wire is in good condition as well. The only condition issue is that the drag as detached from the scabbard and is held with some electrical tape, an easy fix. Otherwise tight with no shaking. Overall length is 36", blade is 29".
