Model 1860 GAR sword with cavalry dress cords and carrying case- Ex-museum
Fantastic M1860 GAR sword and scabbard. Sword is etched with military motifs, eagle, and “US” on the blade. Ricasso is stamped “WWM” on one side and “1898” on the other. Leather covered grip is in excellent condition and retains the twisted wire wrap. Scabbard is nickel plated with brass mountings. All excellent condition.
Attached to the sword are cavalry dress cords (aiguillette) from the Indian Wars era. The cords may not be complete, please look at the pictures to determine for yourself.
This item comes in the original leather carrying case. The case is lined with white wool and is closed by two nickel plated clasps. The case has some scuff marks and a small tear near the closing clap. Leather is strong and supple.
This item was acquired at the April 2012 sale of de-accessioned items from the Hershey Story Museum in Pennsylvania. The museum had acquired a vast military collection in the late 1800s - early 1900s, mostly from local veterans. The sword retains the museum marking tags. A photocopy of the sale advertisement comes with this fantastic piece.
