    Description

    British Pattern 1853 Enlisted Dragoon Saber With Spurious Confederate Marking. A solid example of the British 1853 pattern cavalry sword with a 34 ¾-inch ever-so-slightly curved single-edge, bright blade. Obverse ricasso marked "CSA" in a rectangular box; reverse ricasso marked with a mis-struck three line "COURTNEY & / TENNANT / CHARLES" within a broken-bordered rectangle. No other maker's mark visible. The flat, iron-mounted knucklebow is joined by the two branches at the flat oval counterguard that terminates in a quillon ending in a flat disc. Original grips of checkered leather scales riveted to the tang of the blade with five small rivets. Hilt is missing its original washer pad. Iron pommel exhibits an unadorned single-domed cap. Iron scabbard with two mounting rings.

    Condition: Very good. Blade with moderate surface rust and light scabbard wear. Hilt with a uniform patina. Scabbard with light surface rust but remains overall smooth with wear mainly on the obverse side. A nice example of this type.
