    Eaglehead Pommel American Officer's Straight Sword C. 1830 31" straight blade with engraved military/floral motifs, retaining traces of the original fire blue and much of the original gilt, the balance a smooth dark patina, just a few scattered, tiny, really negligible nicks. Brass hilt with deep, dark untouched patina with five ball decoration on the knucklebow as well as on the outboard branch. Ring for attaching the sword knot affixed where the knucklebow enters the pommel. Very nice crested eaglehead. Hilt overall about perfect. Bone grip with vertical incised line decoration perfect, with nice mellow patina and 3/8" brass ferrule at the base. Very nice untouched sword and possibly regular establishment.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
