This is the cavalry officer version with the 35 inch blade. The blade is a well made blade with a dove gray color patina with a smooth attractive look on both sides. At the base of the blade it has the coveted two line "T.G. & Co. / N.O." maker mark. This is the marking from the Thomas Griswold firm of New Orleans, Louisiana. The guard and pommel cap are the classic Confederate style manufacture. It has the floral patterns on both pieces that denote the sword being of officer quality rather than being made for an enlisted man. The guard has the splice of the two pieces which is characteristic of a New Orleans product. The top of the pommel cap also has the blurred joint seam which is also a New Orleans trait. The handle has about 95% of the original leather hanging on as well as the entire double twist wire grip. This beauty is as pure as the driven snow. It in the original scabbard. These swords have the distinctive brass scabbard. This one is in 100% complete condition with a spectacular look.

This sword and scabbard are fantastic by anyone's standards.
