    Description

    Slimmed and Shortened For Confederate Use - 1st Model Virginia Manufactory Horseman's 32 3/4" curved blade, chip missing from the tip, generally smooth and gray with some scattered areas of old dry rust and some light pitting, no nicks. Blade is totally unmarked. Hilt excellent, generally smooth with untouched dark patina, just some very minor pitting on the pommel cap. The original wooden grip is fine but only retains about half of the leather covering, which is very dry, along with a small portion of the twisted wire wrap. The scabbard is probably from a M1840 saber but fits fine and appears to have accompanied it since the period of use. Scabbard with dark patina and some scattered areas of very light pitting, complete with the throat although the screw is missing. Good representative example and very possibly the original scabbard.
