An exceptionally nice and clean C. Roby, W. Chelmsford Mass. saber and scabbard with the three part stamping of the name on one side of the ricasso, and US over 1864 over AGM on the other side. The blade is exceptionally bright and clean. The grip leather is intact, and the grip has a single strand of twisted wire. The pommel is extensively stamped on the inside face with numbers and symbols, including 30, 0, and 18. The scabbard appears to have been blued over bright steel. Dimensions: The sword is 42 inches long overall in the scabbard. The blade is 35.25 inches long. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Very good overall, with an excellent blade. The grip is a bit dirty, and the wire may be replaced. The scabbard has several very minor dents.
