WALSCHEID NON REGULATION FOOT OFFICERS SWORD AND SCABBARD
Original Civil War Walscheid Non Regulation Foot Officers Sword and Scabbard. This import sword was made by the firm of W. Walscheid of Solingen Prussia (Germany). Best my memory serves me right, this company was only in business during the war time years and all were manufactured for Civil War Use. This is a really nice complete example. The handle is tight to the blade and has most of its original shark skin wrap and wire intact. The full length blade is in good condition but has been lightly sharpened. Has W.Walscheid Solingen on one side of the blade and a Proved stamp on the reverse. The metal scabbard is in excellent condition and has its throat, drag and both mounting rings. Please see all photos.
