CIVIL WAR Era Model 1840 Cavalry Saber Totally Unmarked CSA? This is a very well made yet unmarked Model 1840 from Solingen , Prussia at the time but Germany today. They were made by several company's in Solingen in what was called cottage manufacturing meaning that some specialized in blades , other in the brass fittings , and yet others in grips - then they were all assembled by that Company or family business as most were to begin with. Enough history for now - this is a beautiful example of that model and it is in as found condition The blade is bright with some minor rusting and pitting going on near the tip mainly that needs to be addressed soon , and the cross hatching is still visible on this one as well. It is of the transition blade design near the last part of the WBTS because the blade is 35-7? 8"s L x 1-5/32"s W x 5/16s thick at the ricasso to compete with the Model 1860's of that time period in the WAR.

The wooden grip is in good shape , the wire wrap is broken and loose , and the cord wrap is mostly intact - but there are only remnants of the leather left. The quillion is bent slightly forward as was common practice at the time Near the tip there is some light rust and some light pitting starting and it should be addressed soon - blade is bright except in those areas There are 7-8 light blade strikes and this saber appears to be either an unmarked S&K or a C&J due to the quality of the blade and the brass parts. Thanks for looking and best regards.
