    Confederate Dog River Cavalry Saber. This unmarked weapon is 41.25" long overall with a 35.5" blade, brass hilt and pommel, leather-wrapped grip bound with brass wire, blade with wide, single fuller. The iron scabbard has brass ring mounts and throat. This saber should delight the Confederate sword collector in that its brass elements are of incredibly crude manufacture. All of these retain file marks from the poor, hasty finishing typical of wartime Southern shops. Light overall rusting and a dent on the scabbard. The brass has been cleaned in the past, but it is beginning to assume some toning.
