    Description

    US Naval Officer's Sword C. 1835, about Identical to Figure 133 in Peterson. Rather heavy 31½" blade generally smooth and gray retaining some touches of luster. Scroll and arms panoply engraved decoration retains much of the original gilt and traces of white scroll etching. There are some scattered tiny nicks but really very minor. The all brass hilt retains traces of the silver wash and is identical to the one shown in Peterson with plumed helmet pommel, guard with spread wing eagle surmounting an anchor, and lion head quillon. Hilt overall about perfect including the checkered bone plaque grips. All brass scabbard with both ring mounts and frog stud, retains traces of the original silver with several dents, primarily on the lower section. There is no throat. Fine example of this very scarce US Naval officer's regulation style sword.
