BOYLE & GAMBLE STAFF & FIELD OFFICER SWORD

PRICE   $  4,595.00

DESCRIPTION

A Confederate staff and field officers sword with etched blade and "CS" in guard.  The grip retains much of the original leather and an unusual finely twisted double strand of brass wire wrap which definitely appears original to the sword. Guard has a beautiful aged brass patina with large "CS" and star decoration. Left front of guard has the number "16" stamped next to blade which is standard on Boyle & Gamble staff swords. Blade clearly shows the flaw seen on these pattern swords. Also, the blade is fully etched in the standard B & G pattern seen on this style sword.

An original Confederate made sword with the CS in guard that we all like to see.

 

CONDITION

    A nice and original sword. The grip shows partial loss of leather and someone at some point in time has put a piece of tape under pommel I guess to "tighten" it, not sure what the point of this was. Blade is very smooth and has turned a nicely aged brown color. The etching is complete and fairly easy to see.

Displays very well.
