PALMETTO CONFEDERATE M1840 CAVALRY SWORD AND SCABBARD
Original Pre Civil War Palmetto Confederate M1840 Cavalry Sword and Scabbard by William Glaze & Co. Columbia, SC. Got this sword on consignment from the Lee Hadaway Collection. Author of books on edged weapons and bowie knives. Has a beautiful overall untouched patina that displays great. The original leather and wrap are mostly intact and stable enough to use in service today. The undisturbed pommel and brass guard have a matching aged patina. The blade is full length with minimum nicks from service and has not been sharpened. Has partial Columbia, SC stamp on one side of the blade and blank on the reverse. The scabbard is in great shape with the original throat, drag and mounting rings. A great example of Confederate Cavalry Sword. Please see all photos.
