This is a gorgeous, amazing American Civil War Staff and Field Officer's sword manufactured by Sauerbier in Newark New Jersey. It is an early manufacture with the "US" in block letters, manufactured between1850 and 1861, after which US Manufacturers produced with the "US" in script. The blade is fabulous with most original finish remaining and frosted blade, as evident in the photos. The most amazing feature is its clear usage, evident in the significant wear to the drag.
This was a well-used sword in the field, and amazingly retains such excellent blade condition, it is rare to find Civil War swords that were clearly used and still retain excellent / near-mint blade condition. The grip is solid with no deterioration, original wire wrap fully intact and strong, the grip and guard are very tight and solid to the blade with no movement or looseness. The blade is a snug, perfect fit to the scabbard, not too tight and not too loose.
There is a "US" in the guard, making it a staff and field officer grade sword, and comes in solid scabbard in excellent condition with Sauerbier pattern brass fittings, and as mentioned the tell-tale sign of war-time wear to the drag. This very sword was in the field with Union troops during the Civil War conflict, witnessing the famous battles we can only read about in books. Don't let this one get away.
