US Model 1913 Patton Officer’s Saber with Copper Plated Hilt & Garrison Scabbard

A very interesting Officer’s pattern 1913 Patton Saber and Garrison scabbard, with a copper plated guard and pommel/backstrap, as well as the more usual officer’s plated garrison scabbard. The blade is also chromed. It is marked, “SA” (Springfield Arsenal) with an Ordnance flaming bomb, over 1914. The other side of the ricasso is stamped “US” over the serial number 24385. The sword has a large black hard rubber washer between the basket and scabbard. The copper plating seems to be intentional as the ultimate finish, as the ferrule and metal plate on the base of the guard are chromed.  The grips remain the usual hard plastic of the sword. Dimensions: 43.5 inches long overall, with the blade being 35.5 inches long. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

 

Condition:

Overall very good and better, with minor losses to the plating on the scabbard in particular, but also some to the basket. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
