    Description

    US M1807 Cavalry Saber By William Rose & Sons. Very fine example of this enlisted cavalry saber contracted for in 1807 with deliveries made in 1807 and 1808 of a total production of 2000 sabers. Blade generally very nice, smooth and dark with just a few scattered areas of light pitting and one chip near the center of the blade. Actually quite minor, and actually appears to be the result of a forging flaw. Iron stirrup also generally smooth and dark with just one area of pitting, some of it rather heavy, on the knucklebow, near the pommel. Original smooth, nicely patinated dark wood grip with a very minor hairline and one small chip at the base, but very sound and retains the upper and lower strands of twisted brass wire. Blade nicely marked W. Rose & Sons on the back edge. There is no scabbard. Fine example of a rare US sword.
