1807 U.S. Cavalry Saber Made By W. Rose And Sons It has a radically curved polished ebony wood grip with twisted brass wire. The iron stirrup shaped hand guard terminates in the flat pommel which is formed at the top of the convex iron back strap. The single edged curved sword blade does not have a ricasso. A single broad fuller, just below the back of the blade, starts ¼” from the cross guard and extends to within 9½” of the extended clip pointed blade. The overall length of this sword is 40¼”. The blade makes up 34¼” of that length with the hilt extending the overall length 5½” to the tip of the capstan rivet. The blade is 3/8″ thick and 1½” wide at the hilt. The only markings are “W. ROSE & SONS” on the top of the blade at the hilt. “& SONS” is separated substantially from the “W . ROSE” indicating that two separate stamps were utilized for the markings. A very nice early U.S. saber. in excellent condition for it’s age. 100% guaranteed to be authentic Gettysburg Museum certified, museum COA provided.
