    Description

    Engraved M1850 Pennsylvania Civil War Officer's Presentation Sword. A beautiful customized weapon with gilt brass furniture on both sword and scabbard. Overall length is 40.5" with a 34" blade. The ricasso is fittingly marked "Horstmann & Sons", Philadelphia's most famous military supplier of the mid-19th century. The metal scabbard's throat panel is engraved, "Capt. J.J. Cooper Co. B, 199th Reg. P.V.". James J. Cooper enlisted on September 10, 1864 only to be discharged some two months later. His regiment went on to become heavily engaged in the fighting around Petersburg and was present at Appomattox Court House. The blade of Cooper's sword is etched on both sides with conventional patriotic motifs amid floral designs. The grip is bound in shark skin accented with gold wire. Light wear as to be expected, yet overall in lovely condition.
