USA 19th Century Cavalry Officer's Sword
Total length 93 cm
Blade: 71 cm
Blade engraved: “The Pettibone Bros. MFG Cº Cinti. O” with two capital initials letters: “KP” and “S. Lee”
with etched panels of warriors and military motifs. In a shield panel is marked “F.C.B.” Gilt brass wire wrapped handle on the shark’s skin, with a gilt lion pommel and three-fingered guard. Metal scabbard with chased brass fittings and drag.
Blade and handle are in excellent condition. The blade retains almost 100% of the nickel finish. Nickel scabbard is speckled with storage rust. Overall excellent example of an early officer light cavalry sword.
