    Default US Civil War Sword - Import..........?

    Recently bought this sword and wondered who produced
    it or where it may have originated, if anyone has an idea.
    There are no markings on it and the spearpoint tip is
    unusual, which leads me to think it must be
    a European import.........

    Hi Steve,
    The closest that I am able to find is U.S. Cavalry trooper's sword. It was a direct copy of the French Model 1822 Cavalry trooper's sword. The photo I have has a little different tip, it is not double edged at the point, (more like a normal sword). The U.S. Confederate States field officer's sword, (circa 1864) has a different guard but has a similar tip and handle.
    Hope this gives you something to work with.
    Ralph.

    Thanks for the info Ralph. I believe it is not French, as
    there would likely be a lot of markings on and around
    the guard and blade. I've read that unmarked blades
    usually came from European sources, sometimes
    with only a small logo.

    The spearpoint tip has me stumped - it looks British,
    and the sword does not appear to be a repro - it
    has some age and wear to it - Then again, leave
    any blade out in a garage or carport a couple
    of years and it might turn out the same.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Ironically I just purchased a NCO Civil War Sword.. I'll be posting it tomorrow. I've seen a few German swords that had faint markings or nothing at all.

    Steve, please don't dismiss it so quickly. I have scanned the page from the book and will post it. I did not say it is French, it was a direct copy of a French sword.
    Anyways, here is the page, I think you will understand better.

    No worries Ralph. I am guessing, but would like to
    believe it was made in Germany for the Union
    Army, and is simply a non-regulation
    'British Pattern' blade.

    I am quite happy with it, although what with
    postage, duty, and the exchange rate, it
    was more than I had anticipated.........


    A quick search on-line shows these below as
    'Staff or Field Officer' swords - they have
    the same style blade, so perhaps either
    could be selected:
