British 1822 Light Cavalry Saber Stamped C.S.A.

A very fine British 1822 Light Cavalry Saber & Scabbard, with large letters “C.S.A.” stamped into the ricasso. The sword began its life as a British issue sword, and there are barely visible Crown marks on the back of the blade. The grip leather is very good with no wire wrap. The hilt and scabbard have an overall dark color to them, possibly old black paint. The blade is overall grey, with some bright area, and a few minor patches of pitting. The edge was period sharpened.  Dimensions: 41.75 inches long overall, with the blade 35.5 inches. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
