SOLD ITEMS


This outstanding American infantry officer's sword and its original buff leather belt date ca.1825-1835, and was purchased in Elyria, Ohio. Sword hilt and scabbard are silver-washed, indicating that it was an infantry officer's weapon. Open-beaked eagle is massive, both quillons are in the shape of acorns, and langets are shell-shaped, a motif replicated on the back-piece of the hilt. Blade is 31" long, finely etched in military and floral motifs, including the Federal Eagle with thirteen stars and strands of arms.
Buff leather belt has a person's name written on the inside, which appears legible, but I was not successful in deciphering it. Two piece silver-washed eagle belt plate survives in superb condition.
The blade is in terrific condition, with small areas of discoloration, and retains its mirror-bright finish.
A wonderful, rare complete ensemble dating back to the Seminole Wars!
