    Description

    Unmarked US M1860 light cavalry saber. All brass hilt excellent, the quillon just slightly bent. Leather wrapped grip with twisted brass wire very good, just showing honest wear with one small area worn through near the pommel. Blade about perfect with just one small nick near the tip. The steel scabbard which is the 1906 pattern is excellent with deep dark patina and just some scattered light pitting, absolutely no bends or dents. The regulation 'working' saber on the United States Cavalry from 1860 to 1913.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
