    Cavalry Officer Saber, Model 1872. Similar in style to the model 1860 cavalry saber, this weapon has a lighter weight and thinner blade. It is single edged with a false edge extending approximately 8 inches from the tip. The blade is un-etched with only a slight curve. The pommel is the Phrygian helmet style. The front guard features an eagle with a starburst design in the underside. The grip is leather-covered wood. The scabbard has remnants of nickel plating and brass throat and center ring (the brass drag is missing). The sword is 37.25" overall.

    Condition: General wear, thus good.
