    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.

    UC01. RARE - AMES M1850 MOUNTED OFFICERS SWORD - UNETCHED: This is a rare Ames M1850 Mounted Officers sword with a totally unetched blade which is void of any Ames maker mark.  It is extremely scarce to find an Ames Mounted Officers sword, and one with no maker mark may be an indication this sword was part of the contact sold to the state of Virginia. The hilt is tight with 100% original sharkskin grip and wire, and retain 90% original gold wash. The guard is solid casted brass with no seam, which makes it a mounted version. The 30 1/2-inch blade is bright with no rust, pitting or blemishes.  For the Ames collector, this is a difficult variant to find, and the fact the scabbard is missing gives you an opportunity to add this to a collection at a fraction of the swords full value. $775.00

    C284. MITCHELL & TYLER (BOYLE & GAMBLE) CONFEDERATE FOOT OFFICER SWORD: Boyle & Gamble of Richmond, Virginia was the Confederacy’s most prolific maker of officer’s swords and the company’s field and staff officer’s sword is easily the most recognized sword produced during the Confederate era.  The firm made swords for retail sale as well as government contracts.  The company also supplied their high quality officer’s swords for resale to jewelry and military outfitter, Mitchell & Tyler, located on Main Street in Richmond, Virginia.  Mitchell & Tyler did no manufacturing, but sold the very finest swords, belts, buttons, and even laces and silverware.  In short, they sold everything and more, necessary for the dapper Confederate Officer.  The sword shown here is an example of the sword Boyle and Gamble made for Mitchell and Tyler. It is a standard Foot Officer sword with its original scabbard. The hilt and pommel cap have a deep reddish-brown patina, and displays great casting flaws. The original leather blade washer keeps the un-etched blade tight. The scabbard is original is strong and retains all original mounts, which have the original retention pins.

    C314. CONFEDERATE DOG-RIVER M1840 NON-COMMISSION OFFICER (NCO) SWORD: This newly discovered sword surfaced in an estate sale in Michigan and is being featured for the first time. The sword is 37 inches long with a 30 1/2-inch blade. The brass hilt is comprised of four parts: the guard, the grip, the pommel cap and a top spinner nut, which screws to the tang to hold it all together. The casting on these parts is very crude and there are many flaws and filling marks on all parts. The blade is equally as crude! It is very wavy and uneven with filling marks the entire length of the blade and has a 27-inch unstopped fuller. When you run your fingers along the length of the blade your hand will go up and down due to its unevenness. The scabbard is exceptionally well made but has its flaws. The top mount has a glob of brass were the seam was brazed and you can see filing marks as will. The frog pin is crude and not as well definded as a Union sword and crudely brazed. The drag is equally as crude. The leather body was well made with cotton stitching, and under high magnification you can see tiny dimples running the entire length of the leather body.

    While at the Gettysburg show several well respected dealers of Confederate relics inspected this sword and agree it is Confederate made. Most likely an early production by Boyle & Gamble and limited in quantity due to the production cost. $5000.00
