    Description

    American Eaglehead Officer's Saber C. 1815. 28", 1 1/2" wide curved blade with the wide shallow fuller running open to near the tip. The blade overall with deep dark patina and salt and peppering. No surface rust or nicks. The D-guard brass hilt is fluted on the face and splits at the base forming two branches and a base. Nice crested eaglehead. Dark bone grip with carved with vertical line decoration with just a few minor spits at the top, apparently as a result of the head being pushed downward against the top of the grip, actually quite minor. Hilt overall about perfect with deep dark patina. The sword overall completely untouched. Good representative example of an early American eagle saber.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
