Toledo Made Cavalry Officer’s Sword

A handsome and interesting Toledo made Cavalry Officer’s Sword of a style and size carried by Dragoons, with brass hilt and scabbard, and a beautiful etched straight blade with “Fabrica de Toledo” acid etched on one side, and “Viva La America”  on the other, along with military trophies and floral. The blade has a single fuller that runs most of the way down the blade. The guard consists of a brass birds head pommel, with a “D” guard with two additional branches, in addition to two langets. The grip is covered in black leather with triple wire wrapping.  The scabbard is brass with a steel shoe to the drag. 

Condition: Overall condition is excellent throughout. The blade has been sharpened at some point, but not into the etching. There is a minor spot of staining on the etching, and the etching on the back of the blade shows a little wear. Other than in the etching and where sharpened, the blade retains its original luster. There is one small dent on the scabbard by the drag. The grip is excellent.

Size: The sword is 49 ½ inches long in the scabbard. The sword out of the scabbard is 39 ½ inches, with the blade being 34 inches long and 1 ¼ inches wide.
