    Description

    Iron Hilt Tiffany & Co. M1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber. Blade generally with smooth dark patina overall, no pitting or nicks and just a few very small scattered areas of old surface rust. Nicely marked "TIFFANY & CO / NEW YORK" on the obverse ricasso and "P.D.L." on the reverse. All iron hilt excellent with deep dark patina and just some scattered surface rust and a few small areas of pitting on the pommel. The grip has been rather poorly rewrapped with brown leather and what appears to be the original twisted wire. Scabbard very good with smooth dark patina, no rust or pitting and one dent on both sides midway between the middle mount and drag, and a small dent with tiny hole on the reverse just above the drag. Good representative example.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
