    Description

    Nice American Eaglehead Officer's Straight Sword C. 1825. Straight 32" blade with fuller running open to the tip, decorated with gilt highlighted engraved designs, on fire blue background, for half its length. Retains 80% of the original fire blue and gilt with the balance of the blade exhibiting some staining and luster with absolutely no rust, pitting or nicks. Knucklebow incorporates seven, rather than the customary five, balls and terminates with disc quillon. Nice eaglehead, one piece bone grip carved with vertical incised line decoration, with round faced 3/8" brass ferrule at the base. Grip with nice mellow patina, the hilt overall about perfect retaining traces of the original gilt. Very nice.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
