    Description

    "Roman" Pattern Confederate-Manufactured Foot Artillery Sword, identical to the one illustrated in Albaugh's Addendum To The Photo Supplement. 18¾" double edged, wasp waisted, blade with deep dark patina, just some scattered light pitting and a few minor nicks. Ribbed grip brass hilt perfect with very nice untouched patina. Typical turning marks on the faces of the cross guard finials, marked with a single dot on the face of each side of the guard. There is no scabbard. Certainly one of the great mysteries of the Confederacy is that, not having enough brass for accoutrement finials, they saw fit to produce myriad numbers of this heavy brass hilted sword in various forms, which generally proved useless in combat. A very nice untouched example of this scarce Confederate sword.

    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.
