    Description

    Scarce Civil War Tiffany and Company New York British Pattern 1821 Iron Hilted Cavalry Saber.

    Although little is known with respect to the issuance and usage of the unwieldy sabers, it is generally assumed that they were issued early in the war and subsequently replaced when lighter M1860 swords became available. This is a nice example. Blade smooth and gray, just some minor scattered staining which would clean nicely, marked on the reverse ricasso, "Tiffany & Co." Iron hilt dark, totally untouched, just some light scattered pitting, architecturally perfect. Grip retains most of the original leather, triple strand brass wire wrap excellent. Scabbard smooth and dark, again untouched, absolutely no rust or pitting. There are several rather deep dents at the mid point but the sword still fits fine. Certainly the scarcest of the Tiffany Civil War enlisted sabers.
