FitchSaber.jpg (26705 bytes) Rare Marked Mounted Cavalry Officer's Saber.  This example has one of the rarest marks, that of James P. Fitch of New York.  That company was in the sword selling business under that name in 1862 only, before becoming Fitch & Waldo (also a rare mark) in 1863.  The Sword and original scabbard are in excellent condition, with two minor scabbard dents near the drag as the only detractions.   $ 2400
cavoff2010.jpg (6725 bytes) Mounted Cavalry Officer's Saber.  Import with unusual light-weight scabbard and rayskin grips.  Has an Indian and eagles etched on the blade.  In excellent condition except for dents in scabbard as shown. $ 1100
Ames 1854.jpg (14626 bytes) Early Mounted Artillery Saber.  Ames with a desirable, pre-war 1854 date and in excellent condition.  One of 1000 made with that date.  The only 'issues' that keep this from being a $1200 sword are some nicks on a sharpened blade edge, a slightly loose D-guard, and mottled (not pitted) iron surfaces.  Hard to find these early dated sabers. $ 900
M1860_Gunsalus_thumb.jpg (15656 bytes) Light Cavalry Saber, ID'd.  1865 dated Ames issued to Martin Gunsalus of the 22nd New York Cavalry.  From his descendant's family now living in Santa Barbara, California.   $ 800
M1860_62Ames.jpg (6248 bytes) Light Cavalry Saber.  1862 dated Ames.  Great date on a saber that saw a lot of action but was well cared for.  This sword has more character than any other I've seen.  First, the drag is worn flat.  That's a lot of years of wear.  Second, the hilt is bent double but unbroken, probably from a horse falling on it.  It is in excellent condition otherwise.   $ $850
M1860_65Robuthumb.jpg (4163 bytes) Light Cavalry Saber.  1865 dated Ames.  Fantastic, bright blade with good, clear markings.  The scabbard is also gorgeous in its original dark finish.   A spot of leather loss near the pommel is the only downside on this beautiful example.     $ HOLD
M1860_65Roby_thumb.jpg (23728 bytes) Light Cavalry Saber.  1865 dated Roby.  Blade has good, clear markings and some normal discoloration.  The scabbard is in its original dark finish and excellent save some dents between the rings.   Wire and grip are exceptional.  $ 795
M1860_EmersonSilverThumb.jpg (4369 bytes) Light Cavalry Saber.  1864 dated Emerson and Silver.  Blade is very good to excellent with clear markings.  The scabbard is in its original dark finish and is missing the throat.   Wire and leather grip are very good to excellent.  $ 750
