This American infantry officer's sword dates ca.1821-1835, and is mounted with a blade by the notable Solingen cutler P.D.Luneschloss, as is indicated by the initials P.D.L. on the ricasso. Blade is surprisingly long, measuring 32"/82 cm. Usually one encounters these spadroon-bladed American swords with 29" blades. Silver wash is essentially intact, and the sword has acquired a tremendous patina over silver, on both the hilt and the scabbard. Vast majority of the swords of this vintage have been cleaned and molested, but this one survived in un-altered condition. There is some slight looseness to the hilt, but the sword has a solid feel to it. Some minor silver-wash wear is present in the most prominent spots on the hilt, otherwise I would wager that 90+% of the silver wash remains. Blue and gild is also largely intact, and has a beautiful electric glow. To help imagining how the sword looked when silver was polished, take a note of the scabbard throat, where the langets cover it, when the sword is sheathed.
