    Very Fine Civil War Iron Hilt Tiffany & Co. New York M1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber and Scabbard. The 35¾" curved blade is near mint and marked "Tiffany & Co./ New York" on the obverse ricasso with "P. D. L." (P. D. Luneschloss) on the reverse. The distinctive iron hilt is excellent with just some scattered staining and a few very minor patches of salt-and-pepper pitting. The grip retains 80% of the original leather with wear on the high points from honest use. The twisted brass wire wrap is tight and intact. The heavy iron scabbard is also near mint with just some scattered staining, absolutely no dents, rust or pitting. Really a choice example of this desirable Civil War saber.

    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.
