    Description

    Circa 1830 American Eaglehead Mounted Infantry Officer's Saber. 35" curved blade retains 90% of the original fire blue with some fading and much of the gilt on the engraved military/floral/scroll motifs. The balance is fine, with just some staining and a few scattered tiny nicks. Absolutely no rust or pitting. Brass hilt with reverse P-guard, disc quillon. Eaglehead with finely delineated feathers and backstrap. Langets with deep relief, tucked wing eagle with shield on stippled background. One-piece checkered ivory grip perfect with nice patina and 1/4" brass ferrule at the base. The hilt retains traces of the original silver wash. Leather scabbard with some crazing/flaking. The plain brass mounts retain some of the original silver wash and are in sound condition. The throat configured to accept the langets. A very attractive American eagle saber in fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
