BOYLE & GAMBLE CAVALRY OFFICER'S SABER

 

PRICE   $  10,500.00

DESCRIPTION

A fine example of the classic cavalry officer's saber made by Boyle & Gamble of Richmond, VA.  The sword is housed in its original and extraordinarily rare brass mounted leather scabbard. Unique flat blade measures 34-inches. Heavy three branch brass guard and pommel with minor casting flaws. Oilcloth wrapped grip with single strand iron wire wrap. Original leather scabbard has soldered sheet brass mountings with small brass ring mounts. Drag is of the proper style and appears original to scabbard.

A rarely seen Confederate sword with the original and very scarce leather scabbard.

CONDITION

    A very high condition sword and scabbard. All brass has the same evenly aged patina. Oil cloth grip is near perfect as is iron wire wrap. Blade is a smooth silver-gray color with very minor spotting. Leather scabbard is solid and retains nearly all the original finish. It does look like a weak spot in lower quadrant of scabbard has been reinforced.
