    Exceptional College Hill Arsenal Confederate Staff Officer's Sword and Scabbard, FIG 4-A in Albaugh. 36" overall with typical rather narrow 30" blade with penknife ricasso. The blade is etched for nearly its entire length with scroll work and a very fancy scroll embellished "C. S. A." on the reverse. Blade excellent, smooth and light gray retaining 75% of the original etch. Brass hilt perfect with distinctive CSA cast on the underside of the guard with rough cast interior. Grip retains about 90% of the original oil cloth wrap with perfect tightly twisted brass wire. Great patina and untouched. The original side stitched leather scabbard with incised line decoration and plain brass mounts. Scabbard excellent with just some flaking toward the bottom and a few shallow dents in the lower mount, very sound. A wonderful Confederate sword and a most desirable pattern.

    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.
