The 1860 Cavalry Officer’s Saber is similar to the 1860 Cavalry Sword but the 3 branch guard is nicely hand chased and engraved, as is the brass pommel. The saber was used by both the Union and Confederate sides during the Civil War. The 33″ long blade is beautifully etched with “U.S.” and “E. Pluribus Unum” along with foliage and military trophies. Steel scabbard has brass throat, rings and drag. Overall length: 42 inches. Blade length: 33.75 inches. Weight: 3lbs. 9oz.
