    Description

    A Confederate Marshall Saber. This Hammond Marshall sword was made at the Atlanta factory of this maker who operated from 1861-1864. Marshall made a variety of belt plates and other objects for the Confederacy including cavalry and artillery sabers. This 31 1/2" model has a 27" fuller, the leather washer present at the ricasso and the number "37" stamped on the underside of the guard at the ricasso. The leather, single wire-wrapped grip is in good condition with the brass guard and pommel unmarked and is identical to a sword shown on page 153 of Clegg Donald Furr's book American Swords and Makers' Marks. The wood and metal scabbard has a 4" throat with ring and a 2 1/2" mount at 12" down the scabbard. The 5 1/4" drag is held in place by four pins.

    This is a rare Confederate sword produced in Atlanta, Georgia during the Civil War.
