Description

This is a stunning Civil War Presentation Grade Staff Officer's Sword of the highest quality.  The face of the pommel showcases an engraved Medusa head in fine high relief detail. The hilt shows copious original fire gilt including a stunning quillion of a roaring lion.  The grip and wire wrap are in excellent condition and show very slight handling use.  The blade is profusely engraved and shows multiple panoply of arms and eagles with ample scroll and leaf engraving. A large inscription of “US” is engraved on the panel of the blade. The engraving is in very good condition with some slight darkening to but absolutely no rust or pitting present.  The blade is also marked “Horster,” which is a German blade manufacturing firm. This sword was likely retailed by Ball, Black Co. New York.  The leather scabbard is in very good condition for the age and includes engraved mountings.  Overall, this is a phenomenal and quite rare example of a high-grade Staff Officer’s Sword from the Civil War.
