    Description

    American Eaglehead Infantry Officer's Saber C. 1825. 28" wide curved blade excellent. Generally smooth and clean with just some minor scattered salt and peppering and two tiny areas of very light pitting. Shows no sign of ever being fire blue decorated with gilt decoration on the engraved military and floral motifs including a liberty cap. Faceted guard with five balls in the center of the knucklebow and single outward branch also with five balls, disc quillon. Nice crested eaglehead. Carved/fluted bone grip perfect with nice patina and a 3/8" round face brass ferrule at the base. The hilt retains 10% of the original silver wash. Nice saber with implications of regular army use.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
