This is a  Confederate saber, which is often sold on on-line auction sites as being original.  It is not!  Look at the grip and you will notice it does not match any know example of a Confederate saber. Also the guard is the wrong design, and the markings and etching on the blade are not period and made to deceive.  Don't be fooled!

You will often see this same FAKE with different bogus marker marks and dates. If there is a date on the saber, you should be concerned.  With the exception of a few known Confederate sword, a date is questionable.
