Unmarked example showing many of the features common to genuine Confederate made swords. It generally follows the design of the US M1850 Foot Officer’s sword with a cast brass single branch guard (no slot for sword knot) and simple acanthus design. Plain Phrygian pommel and quillon; leather wrapped grip (no wire) with slanted grooves going the opposite direction of US models. Slightly curved unmarked plain 30" blade with a single unstopped fuller. Replaced leather washer. Blade slightly uneven, having been sharpened; showing pitting overall and several shallow edge nicks. Original iron scabbard of typical Confederate construction with soldered brass mounts and crude soldered lapped seam; the brass mounts plain and crudely cast; iron with corrosion, heaviest near the drag. It is likely that this sword was made by either Nashville Plow Works or L. Haiman & Bro. and is a very scarce example.
