Model 1860 U.S. Calvary Saber
This is a Civil War era Model of 1860 Calvary Saber. This saber is marked on one side of the blade “U.S., 1964, A.G.M.” and on the other “C. Roby, W. Chelmsford, Mass.” The saber is completely straight and the grip remains tight, but there are signs of rust and age on the blade and the black finish to the grip is wearing away in several places. The steel scabbard of the blade has rust over about 70% of its surface, but it all appears to be superficial wear.
