    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. $27.00

    U802. AMES - M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD, VARIANT: This Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword is a unique variant. Instead of the standard etched blade, this one has a M1833 Dragoon saber blade. The reason for this in unknow, but some speculate the blade may have originally belonged to the father of the officer who had this special-order sword built. The hilt is tight with original sharkskin grip and wire and the original blade washer hold the blade tight. The blade is an 1837 dated Ames Dragoon blade, modified to fit the scabbard. The arch of the scabbard was also adjusted for the blade and the throat piece reinforced with the addition of retention screws. This is a unique variant, of which may be the only known example. $1600.00

    U822. MODEL 1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD, MINT ETCHING: This M1850 Staff & Field sword has mint etching. The large US basket guard has 80% original gold wash and the shark-skin grip and triple wire is 100% original. The 33-inch blade is bright with mint frosty etching and IRON PROOF on the spine. There is no maker mark, but the shape of the blade looks American made. The scabbard has a deep rich brown patina and the deep gold/brown patina on the mounts highlight the fancy chase work. This is an exceptional example of the style sword. $2300.00

    U844. SAUERBIER - TYPE-2 CAVALRY OFFICER SABER: This is a Sauerbier Type-2 cavalry officer saber without a scabbard. The hilt and pommel cap are plain with no chase work at all. The original black leather grip and wire are tight. The original blade washer is complete and holds the blade tight.

    U855.  HORSTMANN MOUNTED ARTILLERY OFFICERS’ SABER: This is one of the most difficult sabers to find and is missing from most advance collection and may be scarcer than the Ames version. Horstmann made these sabers with the Type-1 hilt, which is design with the recessed hilt for the scabbard and in three known configurations: 31-32 plain unetched blade with a leather grip and a stamped address, 32-33 cavalry style etched blade with a sharkskin grip and an etched address, and 36 inch cavalry style etched blade with a sharkskin grip and an etched address. All are extremely rare. This saber is the example with a plain 31-inch blade. It has the original leather grip with 100% original wire. The hilt is moves because the blade washer is gone, but not too much. The pommel cap has never been disturbed. The blade has a gray patina, never sharpened, and HORSTMANN & SON, PHILADELPHIA marked.  On page 230 of the book “Civil War Cavalry & Artillery Sabers” by John H. Thillmann there are three photos another example of this saber to include the identical style scabbard. Currently, one is listed on ebay (Item # 163899643804) for $5800.00. I have priced this saber well below marked value and it is a bargain at this price!. $2900.00

    U864. HORSTMANN & SONS – GEBRUDER WEYERSBERG STAMPED, MODEL 1832 SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD: This is a unique and rare find! It is a Gebruder Weyersberg stamped model 1832 short artillery sword retailed by Horstmann. The blade is in excellent condition with a few dark spots, but no pitting, rust or nicks. The brass cast hilt is well done, including the fine stripping of the cruciform guard disk and well chased eagle; however, the hilt-jointing effort along the side is crude and unfinished. Some might mistake this for being Confederate, but the Southern copies have dimples in the guard from castings made from an Ames sword.  These swords were sold to the U.S. Government, or state or local militia artillery units during the American Civil War. There is no scabbard. $650.00

    U866. HORSTMANN & SONS – MODEL 1832 SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD: This is a unique and rare find! It is model 1832 short artillery sword, most likely made by Gebruder Weyersberg, and retailed by Horstmann with an Ames scabbard. Horstmann was and authorized deal for Ames and often sold and used their products. The blade is in excellent condition with a few dark spots, but no pitting, rust and a few nicks. The brass cast hilt is well done, including the fine stripping of the cruciform guard disk and well chased eagle; however, the hilt-jointing effort along the side is crude and unfinished. Some might mistake this for being Confederate, but the Southern copies have dimples in the guard from castings made from an Ames sword. The scabbard, which is Ames made, is in near-mint condition and perfectly fit the sword.  These swords were sold to the U.S. Government, and state or local militia artillery units during the American Civil War. Overall, this is in near-mint condition and will be hard to improve upon!  $1400.00
