NO LONGER AVAILABLE


This Civil War period Henry Sauerbier of Newark, NJ M1850 field officer's sword is mounted with a 31" blade, with typical Sauerbier fullers, etched in unique Sauerbier style, much of the etching is long gone, with some remaining towards the forte. Hilt and brass details of the scabbard are nicely patinated and exhibit signs of field wear, dings on the scabbard drag and wear to the hilt. I strongly believe that this is one of 100 infantry officer's swords made by Sauerbier for a 1861 contract. Most of those swords were not maker-marked, but all show unique Sauerbier traits - blade fullers, blade etching, toothed scabbard mounts, unique Sauerbier style of securing the knuckle bow into the pommel with a screw, and the capstan nut securing the blade tang to the pommel.
A nice Union field officer's that was carried in the thick of it!
