French Import Foot Officer's Civil War Sword
29" single edged blade with full length fuller, 1.2" wide at forte. Brass single-branch guard with floral motifs, with wire-wrapped shark skin grip. Blade etched with patriotic and martial themes, with additional Klingenthal manufacture marking on spine. Reverse ricasso marked with French control markings. Original leather scabbard.
Very good overall. Blade is still mostly bright with etchings showing some wear and loss of detail with no major imperfections to cutting edge. Guard has a mixed brass and bronzed patina. Grip is of good condition with wire present.
