US 1840 NCO Sword & Scabbard with Etched Blade

This is a very interesting smaller 1840 NCO sword, almost certainly made by Roby, but with no maker’s mark. It has a cast down-turned reverse guard with ornamental flourishes that I have only seen on swords marked Roby. The blade is extensively and uniquely etched, with crossed bows and arrow and quiver, as well as vines, flowers, and a trophy of arms, and has a square backed blade. The scabbard is interesting, and has slightly unusual mounts with round frog button on the throat, and a very plain drag. Dimensions: 31.5 inches long overall, with the blade being 24 inches long. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

Very good condition overall, with a bright, clean blade, although there are a few very minor spots. There are two minor nicks on the cutting edge by the point. The scabbard seam on the reverse is open. There is a dent on the drag.Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
