    Description

    Scarce Form, Confederate Foot Officer's Sword by Boyle & Gamble of Richmond, Virginia. About identical to Fig 2-G in Albaugh's photo supplement, with V piercing in guard and with etched blade. The entire sword completely "in the black" untouched, really superb. The 31" slightly curved blade with characteristic flaw 1.75" from the hilt, rather narrow unstopped fuller, etched for one half its length with typical B. & G. motifs of tobacco leaves, scrolls and crossed flags. Blade with smooth dark patina, very nice, absolutely no rust or pitting. Hilt perfect with deep dark untouched patina and traces of gilt, very sharp. Grip also about perfect with just a few minor scuffs and all of the original single strand copper wire wrap. There is no scabbard. An exceptional example of this very desirable sword by one of the Confederacy's most famed and prolific makers.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
