A rather scarce sword is this Clauberg M1840 Civil War import. Void of inspector's marks, as all of the Clauberg-made swords were sold to private importers, and then resold to the militia regiments, going off to fight the Rebels.

32"-long blade is in excellent shape, retaining most of its factory shine, with minor darkening. Scabbard leather is dry, about 1" is missing from the middle.
The patina on this piece is fantastic. This sword was acquired at a local, Rhode Island estate auction. It probably hung on someone's mantelpiece for ages. It's is a sturdy, well-executed sword. Clauberg-made NCO swords are seldom seen.
