CIVIL WAR CONFEDERATE COLLEGE HILL ARSENAL CAVALRY SWORD W LARGE CSA ON GUARD. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST CONFEDERATE SWORDS, VERY FEW OF THESE ARE IN EXISTANCE. This fine example of a College Hill Arsenal produced Confederate cavalry officers sword is one of the classics of all Confederate sabers. The arsenal was owned and run by L. Cunningham of Nashville, Tennessee & produced several types of swords.

This example closely resembles the Nashville Plow Works saber in design. Unlike the Plow Works design, the College Hill saber has a large block letter C S A on the underside of the guard & an iron back strap instead of brass.

Plain blade w/ a single unstopped fuller. Crudely cast brass guard & knuckle bow featuring a block C S A on the underside of the guard. Five branch guard joins the knuckle bow at the midpoint becoming a single branch before entering the pommel. Iron back strap/pommel cap w/ an iron capstan rivet.

Brass wire wrapped leather grip. Iron scabbard w/ brass scabbard rings & iron suspension rings. Guard & knuckle bow have a deep mustard patina w/ sharp details giving the crude casting technique. Back strap/pommel has a dark chocolate patina.

Grip leather is about 80%. Scabbard has a dark overall chocolate patina w/ a few scattered, shallow dents. Brass scabbard rings have a mellow, mustard patina. A fine example of a scarce Tennessee manufactured Confederate saber. The item "CIVIL WAR CONFEDERATE COLLEGE HILL ARSENAL CAVALRY SWORD W LARGE CSA ON GUARD" is in sale since Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
