    Rare Confederate Saber Owned and Illustrated by William Albaugh. One of the finest Confederate cavalry sabers in existence. This is the actual saber in William Albaugh's personal collection and published in his book Confederate Edged Weapons. This saber was sketched by Carl Pugliese for Albaugh in 1960. The massive blade is 36" long with a single fuller. The guard is iron with an original leather covered grip and single strand brass wire. The original scabbard is in near mint condition, as is the saber, with brass spur strap buckles as ring hangers instead of customary ring mounts. The saber is truly unique, with impeccable provenance from the great collector/author William Albaugh.

    Provenance: Dr. Garvin

    Authentication: Steve Hess
