Original Civil War Emerson & Silver M1860 Light Cavalry Sword and Scabbard in very nice condition. The Brass handle and pommel have a beautiful undisturbed patina. The original wrap and wire is intact with just a few spots wore down to the wood from service. The blade is full length with no nicks and has never been sharpened. Has the Emerson & Silver stamp on one side of the blade and US, JM inspector initials and 1864 production date on the reverse. The scabbard fits tight to the sword and has the original throat, drag and both mounting rings. It has been plated at some point but really looks good with this sword. Possible war trophy in a Veterans Reunion Hall. Please see all photos.
