U582.HIGH-GRADE PRESENTATION SWORD with ORNATE MEDALLION MOUNTS & SILVER SCABBARD:  This is a high-grade Civil War period sword with a post-war presentation.  The sword is most likely a Clauberg product with a PDL marked blade.  It has a fancy eagle pommel hilt with US in the basket, a German silver grip, and a great pommel. The blade is PDL marked, and shows wear, but all the etching is present, as well as the leather blade washer. The scabbard is outstanding! It is silver plated steel with ornate medallion mounts and a drag with a standing soldier. On the top mount is the presentation “Presented to Capt. E. W. Holden by the Members of Company H. 10 Regt M. V. M.” Massachusetts Volunteer Militia.

E. W. Holder (Ethan W. Holden) was from Westminster, MA. He Enlisted as a Private on 10/01/1861 as a member of Company F, 25th Massachusetts Infantry and was discharged for disability on 7/24/1862 at New Berne, NC. After the war he was a member of GAR Post #69 (Joseph P. Rice) in Westminster, MA as the Post Commander. He also was a member of the post-war 10th Regiment.  Records show he received a pension, and muster sheets are on file, though more research is required. The hilt and scabbard are outstanding, but the blade is a little tired, and if it were better this would be a $5500 sword. $4200.00
