U676.  USMC - M1850 OFFICERS' SWORD This is a United State Marine Corps M1850 Officers' sword – early version.  The Marine Corps authorized Marine Officers to carry this sword between the years 1859 - 1875.  The earlier ones have the Horstmann mark in a rectangle shaped box and the Kings head stamped in the blade. This is an early version.  The hilt is tight with all original leather and double-strand wire.  The brass has a nice even mellow patina.  The original blade washer keeps the blade tight.  The blade has an even patina, and has the standard etching for a Horstmann officer blade with USMC in the center panel. The U.S.M.C. etching is a different variant because the period between the letters are centered justified: U•S•M•C•, this is the only example I have seen to date with the periods raised.  The scabbard is original to the sword and has all the brass fittings, with the unique ring mounts. All the mounts are firmly in place. This is a rare sword to find. $2600.00

U617.  M1840 CAVALRY OFFICERS' SABER:  This is a classic M1840 Cavalry Officers' saber which shows wear, but is in great condition.  The guillion adornment has a radiating fan near the top edge of the quillion.  The two branches have the expected laurel leaf cast design that extends halfway down.  The pommel cap is in the regulation Phrygian helmet pattern with more chase work. The grip is shark-skin with braded wire. The entire hilt is tight, and generous amounts of original gold wash is still present. The frosty blade is held tight by the original leather washer and shows light period sharpening.  The 35 " blade is adorned with an Eagle, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" a large US and Eagle.  The scabbard is a style seen on Soligen made sabers. It is steel and believed to have been bright when made.  The chased mounts are all brass including the throat, suspension rings and drag. The ring mounts have a center heavy brass band with a scribed line border and are press or friction fit.  The drag is the same design as the bands.  This is an excellent example of a M1840 Cavalry Officers' saber. Obviously this saber and Item U387 were produce by the same maker. $3500.00
