    ACRYLIC SWORD & SCABBARD STAND: This pair of acrylic sword & scabbard stands was designed to hold one sword and its scabbard. Each is 5 inches tall and designed with square edge groves to prevent the sword or scabbard from flipping over as often happens with similar stands with a rounded cut. They will accommodate swords of all sized from small bowie knives to cavalry sabers.  This design presents a very clean and crisp display that is attractive and yet inexpensive. One pair free with a sword purchase, or for sale. $27.00

    U742. SAUERBIER PLAIN HILT, TYPE-1 ENLISTED CAVALRY SABER: This is a rare enlisted saber. The blade is unmarked; however, the saber and scabbard have the classic hilt profile, thick guard, spanner nut and blade fuller unique to Sauerbier. The steel scabbard has a brass throat and thick ramped steel drag. This blade washer is original to the sword and the grip is 100% original leather with double-strand brass wire. Overall this in an excellent example of a infrequently found saber. $1500.00

    U750. M1852 NAVAL OFFICER SWORD, ID’ed to ACTING MASTER MATE: This M1852 Naval Officers sword is identified to Acting Master Mate Robert B. Crapo. Robert Bruce Crapo was born 1830 in Massachusetts and served on a Whaling Ship prior to the Civil War. He enlisted in the Navy, 26 June 1862 as an Acting Master Mate and served on the USS WISSAHICKON, which saw action, and later in 1864 he transferred to the USS SUWANEE, and was promoted to Acting Ensign. He remained in the Navy until December, 1867 and died at the age of 40 in 1870.

    The M1852 Naval sword is not maker marked. The blade has great etching to include a Fouled Anchor and a Master Mate holding a boat oar, and the date 1861 on the right side on the left side a long-boat with sailors with raised oars and the US flag, and large block letters U.S.N.  The blade has some dark spots, but no pitting.  The hilt is tight with the original blade washer and original white shark-skin grip and double strand wire. The top of the pommel cap has great chase-work depicting a sea dauphin. The leather scabbard is complete with all original mounts and the top mount is marked: R. B. Crapo USN 1863. Acting Master Mate Robert B. Crapo is listed in the Civil War Data base and I am currently trying to find out if his records are at the Nation Archive. Include will be all historical information discovered. $1500.00
