U707. AMES M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD: This known as a Type-2 Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword. This hilt is tight with traces of gold wash, and a tight grip with 100% original shark-skin and wire. The original blade washer holds the blade tight, and the etching is strong with much original frosting, but some areas of surface peppers spotting. It has never been sharpened and has a sharp point. The scabbard still has the original bluing with no dents or dings, and retains all original mounts with some original gold wash.  $2200.00

********************************************************************************************

U708. CLAUBERG M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD: This is a Clauberg M1850 Staff & Field sword. The hilt has a little wiggle as a result of the blade washer being gone; however, it is in great shape with a good amount of original gold wash. The grip is 70% original shark skin with only one strand of original wire. The blade is over-bright with a dark area near the hilt a spot above the US and Eagle. The etching is strong with original frosting. It never was sharpened and has a sharp point. The scabbard has all original brown finish, except above the top mount, most likely due to being held there by an officer. The mounts have nice chase work and lots of gold wash. The drag is dented on the back side, but has a nice eagle design. $1750.00

C274. CONFEDERATE SABER, GEORGIA MADE: When this saber was discovered the hilt was smoke-soot covered and the scabbard was painted black.  It was a diamond in the rough with hidden secrets. It is similar to known products of Louis Haiman of Columbus, Georgia, but with a different scabbard as noted on the well-respected web site: civilwardealer.com. This saber is a bit more enhanced in its finish with the number 355 on the hilt and pommel cap. The single iron wire and dyed leather, as well as a braised "fault" in the blade near the ricasso, are Haiman characteristics. The scabbard is high quality with a well-made brass throat and brass ring mounts, and a bottom seam similar to a McElroy scabbard. The scabbard fits perfect to the saber with a dark brown patina and no breaks or holes. The hilt has a deep reddish-brown patina and great casting flaws. The big surprise was finding an original CSA stamp on the back-side of the bottom guard branch. The grip retains 100% original leather and heavy single-strand wire, and the blade has the expected casting flaws with period sharpening. There is speculation this may be a Haiman-McElroy collaboration to produce a less expensive Cavalry Officers saber. It is a rare piece and an exceptional example of a Georgia made Confederate cavalry saber. $5800.00

U703. AMES M1840 ARTILLERY SABER: This is an Ames Model-1840 Artillery saber, dated 1864 and inspected. The scabbard was post-war nickel plated.  This was a very common practice for display in GAR halls and parades. The brass has been cleaned in the past and it is starting to develop a patina. The guard is tight, and the pommel has the matching JH inspection mark. The leather is almost all gone, but the original twisted wire remains. The blade is Ames maker marked and inspected U.S. MM 1864. It has an even gray patina and no nicks.  This saber is priced very low, and is a great investment piece if you what the nickel removed and the grip re-wrapped. $450.00
