U958. CENTE GARDE CAVALRY OFFICER’S SABER – SCHUYLER, HARTLEY & GRAHAM – MISSOURI IDENTIFED: This newly discovered Cente Garde Cavalry Officer’s saber surfaced out of Missouri, and is the only known and confirmed example carried by  American Union officer! Other known Cente Garde sabers have a guard with a large medallion with an America Eagle in its center: John Thilmann’s book “Civil War Cavalry & Artillery Sabers” describes it on page 399. This saber is similar, but with a four-branch guard. The hilt retains much of the original gold wash, 100% horn grip, and triple strand wire. The white buff leather blade washer holds the 38 1/2-inch blade tight.  These sabers were imported from France by Schuyler, Hartley & Graham, and as such will have French markings on the spine, which is dated 1862, and French hallmarks at the base of the blade. However, this sword is etched Schuyler, Hartley & Graham New York leaving no doubt it is an American Civil War sword, and currently the only know example. The scabbard is a standard plain steel version. I purchased this sword from a direct decedent of Captain Benjamin F. Buzard. He served in the 13th MO Infantry which became the 25th MO Infantry, and later the Missouri 1st Engineers. Buzard did survive the war and has a Pension record on file at the National Archives. This is the only known example of a 4-branch style Cente Garde saber retailed by, and marked: Schuyler, Hartley & Graham – New York. I am selling this for the value of the saber and not the added history since it is a verbal provenance. Shipping & Insurance included. $6500.00

The brass scabbard is complete with the original throat piece and high-grade large mounts and retains much of the original gold wash.  Simply a beautiful looking saber. $3900.00

U983. MODEL 1840 CAVALRY OFFICERS SABER- MEXICAN WAR – CIVIL WAR: This is an early Model 1840 Cavalry Officers saber that is maker marked “W.S & C” for Wilhelm Schmolz & Co. Solingen. He was in business from 1813 – 1861, which makes this both a Mexican War and Civil War saber, and is very rare. Another indication it is an early saber is the plain etching. The etched panels depict panoplies of arms and flags, mixed with floral scrolls, drums and canons, and a center panel with the words “Damast Stahl” (Damask Steel) or Damascus steel. Interestingly, the etched motifs do not have a “US”, “Eagle” or “E Pluribus Unum” included anywhere on the blade, which was also common on early Horstman Cavalry Officer sabers. Most unusual is the original clip-point. The guard is very ornate with chase work on both side of each branch, and the inside of the guard, and a fancy pommel cap with a US shield and an ornate chased worked top. The grip retains 100% original shark skin grip and triple-stand gold washed wire. The German Silver scabbard is complete with all fancy mounts, both rings and screws, and brass throat piece; and retain much original gold wash. This is a wonderful example of and early Model 1840 Cavalry Officers sword. Shipping & Insurance included. $2700.00

A138. BENT & BUSH MARKED NCO - MUSICIAN SWORD, POSSIBLY MARINE CORPS: During the Civil War, the Marine Corps was very small in size compared to the other military services, and Civil War period Marine swords are rare.  Most Marine Corps swords of this period were produced by Horstmann and that company is well known for marking their product. Horstmann had the first contract in early 1859 and the second contract went to Ames in November 1859, and Horstmann got the third contract in 1861. After that, Bent & Bush received all Marine Corps sword contracts for the remainder of the war. This sword may possibly be an example of a sword fabricated by Bent & Bush to meet the contract for the Marine Corps.  To date, it is the only know example of this pattern with a Bent & Bush marked blade. The hilt is originally for a M1860 Staff Officers sword in which Bent & Bush removed all the high relief from the pommel, front shield and guard, and kept the original shark-skin grip, but removed the reverse guard.  The 29 1/2-inch plain blade is Bent & Bush marked and is housed in a black finished metal scabbard with a brass frog-pin top mount and a brass drag. The blade washer is gone resulting in a little wiggle movement of the guard. The sword is designed for an NCO or Musician, and being Bent & Bush marked may be an early attempt by the company to fill the Civil War contract for the Marine Corp or a militia unit. Either way, it is a rare sword. $750.00

It is complete, but the naval yard information on its reverse is not readable.  This is an outstanding example of a U.S.N marked Ames Model 1860 Cutlass with a complete and strong scabbard and the carry frog.

A151. AMES MODEL 1850 FOOT OFFICERS SWORD - 1850 DATED & INSPECTED: The M1850 Foot Officer sword was adopted by the U.S. Ordnance Department on April 9, 1850 and Ames received the purchase order the next day. The brass guard displays a floral design with branches and scrolls cast on the lower hilt. Two blade lengths were requested; 550 with 30 1/2-inch blades and 250 with 32-inch blades. All were made with leather scabbards with brass mounts, and all were marked, dated, and inspected. Ames began delivery by March 10, 1851 and completed the order for 800 swords on February 25, 1852: 192 on March 10, 1851; 24 on April 24, 1851; 120 on July 31, 1851; 168 on October 27, 1851; 58 on January 15, 1852; and 238 on February 25, 1852. This was the only pre-Civil War order received by Ames. The exact number dated 1850 is unknown, but it is a good assumption these would be in the first two shipments. This sword is acid etched Ames, US dated 1850 and inspected A.D.K. Inspector initials A.D.K. and J.W.R. are on the pommel cap, and the drag would also have a mark, but this drag is worn from being carried. It has a 31 1/2 -inch blades, which narrows it to one of the 250 swords ordered with a 32-inch blade. The hilt is tight with much original gold wash and retains 100% original sharkskin grip and twisted wire. The original white buff-leather blade washer holds it tight; It partially covers the date, but enough is exposed to clearly see 1850. The blade retains all original etching under a gray patina and was never sharpened. The scabbard is complete with all original mounts and screws and is strong, but does show wear. 1850 dated an inspected Ames M1850 Foot Officer swords are extremely rare. Shipping & Insurance included! $2500.00

A159. P. S. JUSTICE CAVALRY OFFICER’S SABER - SCHUYLER, HARTLEY & GRAHAM RETAILED: One of the rarest early Civil War cavalry officer’s sabers are those made by P.S. Justice, Philadelphia, and to date there are less than a dozen known examples. This is an unmarked version which was etched and retailed by Schuler, Hartley & Graham, New York.  It has all the traits of a Justice officer’s saber: plain pommel cap and guard; sharkskin grip with one strand of twisted brass wire; a scabbard with a brass tulip throat and thin ornate & fancy ring mounts and drag. Normally, the Justice blade are plane, but this one is etched by Schuler, Hartley & Graham, New York, making it even more rare! This saber is often missing from most advance collections. I saw one for sale and prices over $5500.00. Shipping and Insurance included. $4500.00
