Cast brass one-piece hilt with integral ribbed grip, the quillon block stamped with inventory number “2142" and a shield with “ZZ” (Zurich Zeughaus). Gently curved 23 ½" single-edged blade with rudimentary false edge for the last 4"; made without a fuller and stamped on the ricasso with “WESTER & CO” one side and “SOLINGEN” on the other. Isaac Wester & Co. sold swords to US dealers during the Civil War and also to the Swiss government. Black leather scabbard with brass mounts (drag with shallow dents), secured by a strap and buckle in a buff leather frog and belt with brass furniture and two artillery buckles bearing crossed cannons and a flaming bomb (leather soiled and scuffed from age and use). A great original sword and belt rig that has always been together. Perfect for the Civil War re-enactor who wants an original period piece.
