CONFEDERATE STATES ARMORY KENANSVILLE TYPE II CAVALRY SWORD AND SCABBARD
Original Civil War Confederate States Armory Kenansville Type II Cavalry Sword and Scabbard in Museum Quality Untouched Condition. Although referred to as the Confederate States Armory it is actually a private owned firm by Louis Froelich of Wilmington, NC and later moved to Kenansville, NC. The brass handle and pommel have a beautiful matching deep aged patina. There are Roman Numerals etched in from the factory. The original wrap has been worn down to the wood from service. The original wire is intact but just a little loose. The wire can be tightened if so desired but I love it like it is. The blade is one of the prettiest examples I have seen on a CS Cavalry Sword. Full length with a perfect point and no nicks. The Scabbard is mint with beautiful brass hardware. The throat is intact and also has Roman Numerals. The numbers do not match but its obvious this sword has been together for quite some time. Nice overlap seem on the reverse with complete original drag. A great example that will add to any Museum or Civil War Collection.
