RARE U.S. MODEL 1840 ENGINEER OFFICER'S SWORD. RARE U.S. MODEL 1840 ENGINEER OFFICER'S SWORD.

RARE U.S. MODEL 1840 ENGINEER OFFICER'S SWORD.

Lot #1006 (Sale Order 1006 of 763)

Exceedingly rare 1840 Pattern US Engineer 1840 officer's sword. The small and elite Corps of Engineers drew top graduates from West Point. There were only 39 Engineer Officers at the time of this sword's production. They played a key role in the country's security in building forts and public projects, mapping the country's westward expansion, etc. This pattern was adopted for the corps shortly after the topographical department was split off into a separate organization (until 1863). Both organizations were small and their swords are correspondingly rare, with only a few known to exist. This sword used a triangular epee style blade reminiscent of a European small sword, but uses a quintessentially American motif for the gilt brass hilt: a coiled rattlesnake winds around the grip, its head at the pommel and tail with rattles at the base, resting inside the counterguard. Knuckle bow is flat, with floral motifs at top and bottom with star at center having clouds with Roman legion style thunderbolts jumping out above and below. Folding plain counterguard on reverse. Obverse with raised Engineer castle at center, 26 stars at left, large single star at right that unwinds in a floral spray along the lower edge. Blade is hollow ground, etched with floral motifs for twenty inches in each channel. "N.P. Ames / Cutler / Springfield" at base of reverse channel, with "U.S. Corps of Engineers" etched in reverse channel, with trophy arms and US flag above, and American eagle with ribbon under stars and sunburst before finial leafy vine. Black leather scabbard with gilt brass mounts. CONDITION: Excellent. Lots of original gilt to the hilt with just minor wear to gilt on grip and some rubbing to high points of scroll on counterguard. Blade is bright, etching is very visible. Frosting is thin, but present. A few grey spots including two in area of corps etching, but the designation is still clear and fully legible. Black leather scabbard solid with good finish. Rings and stud present. Rubbing to edges of upper mount showing dark brass beneath. Small similar spots on middle mount. An extremely scarce sword in extremely good condition. (SR). PROVENANCE: From the Collection of George M. Rapport.Blade Length: 31 - 3/4"Overall Length: 37 - 1/2" Condition: Dimensions:

LOT OF 2: AMERICAN REVERSE-P HILTED CAVALRY SABERS WITH DECORATED BLADES.

Lot #1013 (Sale Order 1013 of 763)

Lot consists of: two American cavalry sabers patterned on the British 1796 pattern light cavalry saber that were very popular with mounted officers and troops from 1800 and the War of 1812 into the 1840's. Both have reverse-P hilts with birdshead pommels, crossguards with langets, etched blades and metal scabbards, likely Birmingham made, but certainly for the American market. (A) Mounted with gilt brass hilt and scabbard. Bone grip is carved with bands and spiral grooves. Blade is blue, gilt, and bright etched. Obverse is drypoint etched with two floral motifs and a panoply of arms, all gold washed on blue, separated by two etched bright panels. The blue terminates in a flame-like, scrolling, floral spray. Reverse has a similar arrangement of etched motifs, but the panoply has the dealer name "Spies" in an arc. Adam Spies began his career as an apprentice working for Christopher and D.D. Wolfe, and even represented that firm in England for several years before striking out on his own in New York. CONDITION: Excellent hilt with no chipping to grip and significant gilt on the brass. Reverse etching rubbed slightly just above the ricasso and on the obverse some grey spotting on the blue floral flourish ending the panel at mid-blade. Bright, smooth metal above the blue panel on both sides. Scabbard is very good, no gilt remaining, but mellow brass and no dents. Throat and rings in place. (B) Faceted iron hilt showing mostly bright. Backstrap has side ears. Ferrule is faceted as well. Grip is black leather with thin iron wire, set in three twisted strands. Blade is drypoint etched and gold washed on a blue panel terminating in floral spray and scroll. Obverse with gilt scrolling foliage with a pole and liberty cap at center. A broad American eagle with upraised wings and E Pluribus Unum ribbon in its beak and somewhat square shield on its chest has floral scrolls above and below. Reverse of blade has gilt trophy of arms at bottom with "WARRANTED" in a cloud edged scroll. Above that a mounted dragoon flourishes his saber, with a small panoply of arms overhead and two scrolling floral sections that mirror the termination of the blue panel in floral scrolls. The blade has a broad tip and an impressive kilij style back edge extending ten inches from the tip. CONDITION: Two loose strands of wire on the grip. Minor dark spotting on the hilt. Vivid gold and blue on the blade, which has a good edge and point. Scattered grey spotting to the bright metal above the blue panels on either side. Blue panels retain most of their gilt border lines at the edges. A rubbed gilt panel 2-1/2" long on the back edge next to the guard probably contained a US retailer's name. This is an impressive pair of American sabers from the early 1800s. Blade Length: (A) 31" (B) 33"Overall Length: (A) 35 - 1/2" (B) 38" Condition: Dimensions:

BRASS HILTED BRASS HILTED

BRASS HILTED "HONOR AND MY COUNTRY" INSCRIBED SABER WITH SCABBARD.

Lot #1018 (Sale Order 1018 of 763)

This beautiful saber is an American mounting, circa 1792, of an import blade, likely of German make, with lustrous bluing and drypoint etched motifs with gilt wash and highlights. The blue extends 11" from the guard on either side and terminates with flat ends. The obverse is etched with a short geometric and floral panel just above the narrow ricasso. Above that at panoply of arms with a liberty cap on a pole leads to the principle motif: a large American eagle with a US shield on its chest, fifteen stars overhead, and a knotted ribbon above, reading E Pluribus Unum. The motifs are topped with a wreath of victory and a finely detailed seven-pointed star. The reverse has a similar geometric and floral panel at the base, with a small floral motif above. The uppermost element is panoply of crossed cannons, flags and a liberty cap rising above, atop a pole. The principle element, however, is a boldly etched, "HONOUR AND MY COUNTRY" just below that panoply. The grip is a simple wood grip with black finish, very American in its simplicity, with a simple, round, channeled pommel. The guard is narrow, flaring slightly along the underside to display beveled edges forming an elongated diamond on the exterior, before tapering in again to form a narrow, flat-sided counterguard with a slightly curved flat quillon that ends with a squared off tip, echoing the simple ends of the blued panels. Scabbard is brown leather with dark brown leather collar. CONDITION: Excellent. Very slight thinning to the blue in the upper areas, for the most part rich with good luster. Motifs are gold filled and given bright border highlighting. Gilt border lines are visible to blue panels. Upper blade is grey with dark grey spotting, but good edge and point. Grip has very slight play, shows minor wear to the black finish at points of contact for ridge of holder's palm and finger tips. Scabbard is excellent. No breaks. Good seam. Mixed brown and black with overall crazing and flaking to thin finish, but showing well. No mounts and likely never had any. The throat has narrow leather band sewn around it that may have held a ring or other form of attachment to a belt or baldric. It is possible another such band with a ring was positioned at the midpoint and is now missing. Intact leather scabbards of the period are very rare. A very beautiful sword with quintessentially American hilt form and motifs of the early Republic. (SR)Blade Length: 32 - 1/4"Overall Length: 38" Condition: Dimensions:

Lot #1027 (Sale Order 1027 of 763)

Elaborate Clauberg presentation sword and scabbard given to Felix G. McCrea, 7th Kentucky Cavalry. Clauberg swords are collected in their own right for the quality of their products and their blades were often used by American assemblers. The gilt hilt is deeply cast and chased with a prominent crouching eagle at top. The face of the pommel is covered with coils and scrolls with a slight silver wash at points. A faceless head of Columbia sits below the wreathed edge of the pommel cap. The grips feature a deeply cast and detailed standing Columbia with shield and wreath, with stars overhead on the obverse. On the reverse is a gilt display of arms among deep scrolls and floral designs. The counterguard, cast, chased, and engraved inside and out, features an eagle fighting a snake with a prominent US, the tail of the snake looping through the "U." The underside of the guard has a cup formed of feathers and talons that cover the scabbard throat. Blade has Clauberg logo at reverse ricasso, back of blade etched "Iron Proof." Floral, military and patriotic motifs on both sides of the blade with traces of gold wash at the base on each side. Obverse features 5" long panel with battle scene of lines of troops being lead against an enemy line at right. Cannons fire. Officers with swords are mounted. One center falls from his horse. Scabbard is steel with openwork brass middle mounts with floral cast rings. Shell fans extend from throat. Drag with floral engraving front and back. Applied panel with blank, round center panel and scrolling floral extensions. Scabbard is inscribed in six lines between the middle mounts in script and block lettering: "Presented to Felix G. McRea Adjutant of the 7th KY. Cav. the Friend, the Patriot and the Soldier by the line officers of his Regiment. Nashville Tenn. Sept. 27th 1863." McCrea enlisted at Louisville, KY, and was mustered in as Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant in the 7th KY Cavalry 9/19/62. He was promoted to First Lieutenant and Adjutant 12/11/62. He was promoted to Captain of Co. G as of 11/21/64. He mustered out 7/10/65 with the regiment. The regiment served in the Department and Army of the Ohio and Cumberland and in the Military Division of the Mississippi. CWdata gives instances at which they were engaged with some loss. During their service they lost two officers and twenty-two enlisted men killed or mortally wounded. A Felix G. McCrea served in the Confederate service as a member of the 5th Arkansas Infantry from June 1861 until his desertion from the unit in May 1862. That regiment served in Kentucky and it seems likely this is the same man. If so, as a deserter who joined the enemy, he was fighting with a noose around his neck. In 1866 he joined the 8th US Cavalry and served for a year. He there listed his birthplace as Pennsylvania and his occupation as "soldier." There may be quite a story here. At the very least, the sword testifies that he was well respected by his new regiment. CONDITION: Excellent. Hilt preserves most of its gilt on the pommel, the interior and the face of the guard. Slight rubbing to brass along exterior of upper branch in counterguard. Blade frosting is thin, but designs are vivid. Traces of gold wash near ricasso. Openwork scabbard mounts are deeply cast and chased. Scabbard body is bright with scattered grey and a little dusting of brown.

RARE U.S. MODEL 1860 NAVAL OFFICER'S CUTLASS WITH SCABBARD.

Lot #1028 (Sale Order 1028 of 763)

Rare USN 1860 pattern (actually 1861 according to new research) cutlass with scalloped guard and die cut USN. Rankin guessed these might have been issued to petty officers and the like since some bear inspection marks and officers arms are privately purchased. The navy purchased and issued some 1852 pattern officer's swords, however, so there was likely a small batch of these that was similarly acquired, likely well under one hundred. This is one of those few, bearing not only an Ames scroll address and "U.S.N." over "1862," but also the inspector's initials "D.R." The pommel cap has a brass cap over the blade tang. The guard bears an incised line around the edge, around the edge of the pommel, and along the counterguard, coming to a point at the beginning of the knuckleguard. The shell guard bears slight traces of gilt in the bottom of the impressed lines. The scabbard correctly bears a star mark on the face of the bottom copper rivet. The frog is black bridle leather. CONDITION: Very good. Grip has leather and wire in good condition. Brass has an undisturbed mellow tone. Cup guard has dents overall. One small break in the brass border line of the diagonal stroke of the "N." One nick to exterior edge. Blade smooth, grey mixed with some dark grey areas. No nicks. Good point. Crisp markings. Scabbard very good. Some scuffs. Crazing to the finish, but only minor finish loss. One minor crease on obverse below stud. Tight seam. All rivets in place. Frog very good. A very scarce pattern, even more so with the inspector's initials. SR. PROVENANCE: From the Collection of George M. Rapport.Blade Length: 26"Overall Length: 32 - 1/2" Condition: Dimensions:

EXTRAORDINARY MOTHER OF PEARL GRIPPED OFFICER'S PRESENTATION SWORD.

Lot #1030 (Sale Order 1030 of 763)

A seldom offered opportunity to acquire an outstanding sword. This sword follows the general configuration of an 1850 Staff and Field but with embellishments that put it in a class by itself. The gold washed and gilt brass hilt is deeply cast and expertly chased to emphasize details of the decorative elements. The pommel cap has a large bezel set red semi-precious stone in a border of stippled leaves. The underside of the cap bears engraved floral motifs and a separate band that may be applied. A silver backstrap and bottom strap on the grip bears overlapping scales that are mirrored in the superb mother of pearl grips, in which each scale is fitted with a gilt star appearing to fix it to the hilt. The ferrule is cast with geometric and floral elements. The knuckleguard is deeply cast with entwining vines and branches and a central four-sided "lantern" with red stone lenses or eyes, which are mirrored in the red stone eyes of the eagle head quillion atop the counterguard. The bottom of the knuckleguard ends in a leaf clasping five narrow branches descending from four open circles on the base of the counterguard. The counterguard is cast with openwork work floral motifs and a large "U.S." in Old English. There is a short, openwork folding inner guard. The underside of hilt has a flat rectangular panel from which an umbrella scabbard cap descends, worked with sections of feather textured channeled shells separated by talons and claws. The blade pad is in place. The reverse ricasso has the Clauberg trademark knight and firm name. A stand of arms, foliate scrolls and American eagle with curling drypoint etched E Pluribus Unum ribbon are etched in a gilt washed panel twelve inches long terminating in an Arabesque point. On the obverse the ricasso is blank. The etching moves from a stand of arms and foliate scroll to a blade motto reading "Union for ever" with flourishes and foliate scrolls, ending with a "US" in a floral scroll. All with gilt wash background. Scabbard is bright with deeply cast open work middle mounts, decorated on both sides, throat with floral lower edge and drag with geometric and floral motifs on both sides.

RARE AMES CORPS OF TOPOGRAPHICAL ENGINEERS CIVIL WAR SABER. RARE AMES CORPS OF TOPOGRAPHICAL ENGINEERS CIVIL WAR SABER.

RARE AMES CORPS OF TOPOGRAPHICAL ENGINEERS CIVIL WAR SABER.

Lot #1031 (Sale Order 1031 of 763)

Adopted in 1839 to mark the establishment of the Topographical Engineers as a separate organization from Engineer Corps, a separation that lasted until 1863. The organization was, small, elite, and intimately connected not just with the security of the country in the construction of forts and public works, but was crucial in the exploration of the American west and westward expansion of the country before the Civil War. The pattern is designed for field service, being a modification of the 1833 Dragoon Officer's Saber with a heavier scabbard, a fourth branch added to the reverse of the guard, and star-within-a-star cast in the quillon. Gilt coiled brass wire binding with sharkskin grip. Acorn and oak leaf design on the ferrule. Quill back blade, obverse etched with sunburst, N.P. Ames / Cutler / Springfield address, acorn and oak leaf scrolls, two displays of arms, lower with American shield, upper with pole and liberty cap, leafy vine terminates the etching with flame ends to the frosted panel. Reverse has sunburst at bottom, acorn and oak leaf scrolls, with "U.S. Topographical Engineers" etched in an oval panel with interior border of stars and terminating flames top and bottom. Overhead and American eagle with arrows and olive branch, drypoint etched E Pluribus Unum ribbon, with leafy vine overhead. Frosting terminates in flame points. Scabbard preserves gilt brass "TE" on US shield insignia at top below throat on obverse and gilt rectangular NP Ames maker plaque on reverse. CONDITION: Stellar. Scabbard is smooth metal, blue/brown in color, no dings or dents, just some very small brown age spots under the color and a tiny bit of freckling near the middle ring band. Rings, drag and throat in place. Gilt remaining on applied plaques. Hilt with bright gilt on brass. Gilt brass pommel cap hiding blade tang and nut are in place. Grip wrap and binding are superb. Blade frosting is very good and the etching is vivid. Blade pad in place. The Engineers consistently drew from the top of the class at West Point and were a small, elite group, and their arms are correspondingly rare. Lee and McClellan both started their careers in that branch of service. This is a very scarce sword in wonderful condition that would be near impossible to equal, let alone surpass, and is connected to a significant period of American history. A high point in any collection. (SR)Blade Length: 32 - 3/4"Overall Length: 38" Condition: Dimensions:

ORIGINAL GERMAN THIRD REICH DECORATIVE TAPESTRY.

Lot #1091 (Sale Order 1091 of 763)

The base of this German Third Reich Decorative Tapestry is made of a woven red dyed wool. Two areas of staining can be seen below the eagle, and another lighter colored mark above the eagle. The rest of the base material appears to be untouched. The edges of the tapestry are lined with an intricate cream colored braid, which terminates into the fringed lower section. Two brass rings can be observed in the upper corners of the tapestry, for the purpose of hanging it. The central eagle is separately machine sewn to the base. The eagle appears to be hand painted to a cotton woven base. It is expertly made and appears to be, without a doubt, constructed and assembled during the Third Reich. A few areas of paint loss can be observed on the eagle. While the intended use of this tapestry is unknown, it can be confidently theorized that it most likely is of an earlier, pre-war production and was crafted by old world talent and skill.

PRUSSIAN GUARD OFFICER PICKELHAUBE ATTRIBUTED TO PRINZ ADALBERT.

Lot #1094 (Sale Order 1094 of 763)

Imperial German Prussian Model 1897 Officer Pickelhaube representing the 1st Garde Regiment zu Fuss. This regiment was the most elite regiment in the Prussian army and was formed in 1688 in Potsdam, the home of the Prussian kings. It was garrisoned in Potsdam along with the Garde du Korps cavalry regiment since its founding. Prince Adalbert was one of Kaiser Wilhelm II's six sons. In the center of the helmet's silk liner is a black "A" beneath the Hohenzollern Crown, Prince August Wilhelm's cypher. The consignor reports this attributes this Pickelhaube to Prince Adalbert. The helmet is made from a polished black leather with silver fittings (front plate, chin scales, base, pearl ring, top, and helmet trim) which are correct for this regiment. The Wappen is made from German silver. There is light crazing to the helmet finish in several areas and the leather is generally supple. The front and rear visors exhibit the usual mild to moderate wear to the finish. An officer's Garde star is affixed to the front Hohenzollern Wappen, which is originally mounted to the helmet. The Garde star adorns the center of the eagle and displays a fantastic combination of multicolored enamel with the black and gold eagle of the House of Hohenzollern's nobility. The spike base is silver, and has been mounted with golden stars. While gold stars are not the norm, the nuts securing the stars do not appear to have been disturbed for a very long time. The pearl ring, top, and fluted spike are mounted to the ring, and are also silver. The fluted spike is loose, ill fitting, is in a different shade of silver then the base, top, and pearl ring, and is known to be the type found on Bavarian helmets. The silver chinstrap is intact, and the correct officer scales are mounted to the helmet. The interior leather sweatband has the stamp "R21" in red ink, and a "PB63" stamp in black ink. Both numbers may represent museum inventory numbers. The latter number is has a red line through it, which might indicate an older inventory number with the former being the replacement number. There are letters and numbers written on the red inside of the rear neck guard, and appear to be a "R", an illegible letter, and "133". The cream silk liner is damaged and has become detached to approximately 45% of its circumference, with staining, fraying, and wear in several areas. There is fraying below the black "A" discussed above. All of the interior fittings are intact and do not present any usual wear. CONDITION: Helmet was certainly worn and is in excellent condition overall. WZ Condition: Excellent Dimensions:

Lot #1116 (Sale Order 1116 of 763)

Nicholas Gilman was born in New Hampshire in 1755. He quickly learned the family mercantile trade and became an administrator and financier. He was appointed as a representative in the New Hampshire provincial congress, and later as Treasurer of the state's first General Court under its new constitution. He would continue to serve as the state's Treasurer throughout the American Revolution. In November of 1776, he was appointed Adjutant of the 3rd New Hampshire Regiment under Colonel Alexander Scammell. Gilman's time in the 3rd New Hampshire would lead him to participate in some of the most famous events of the Revolutionary War, including the Battle of Saratoga, where Gilman's regiment was heavily engaged and suffered many casualties. After Saratoga, he went with his regiment to reinforce Washington at Philadelphia and suffered the bitter winter at Valley Forge. It was at Valley Forge that Gilman achieved his most notable accomplishments. Colonel Scammell had been appointed the Adjutant General of the Continental Army, and Gilman was chosen as his assistant. This position afforded him daily contact with not only General Washington himself, but also high ranking members of the Continental Army such as General Nathaniel Greene, General Henry Knox, Colonel Alexander Hamilton, and the legendary Baron von Steuben. Serving with Washington's Army, he would see action at Monmouth and Yorktown, finally retiring from the service in 1783. Gilman continued to serve New Hampshire as a representative at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Eager to draft a document to replace the weak Articles of Confederation, he helped to secure New Hampshire's narrow decision to ratify. His signature on the Constitution can be found third from the top in the rightmost column, just underneath George Washington and John Langdon. Gilman would continue to serve as a Member of the House of Representatives for four terms as well as a term as state Senator. In 1801, he accepted an appointment as Federal Bankruptcy Commissioner from President Thomas Jefferson. He served another tenure as Senator for New Hampshire in 1804 until his death in May of 1814. The sword is complete with a notarized letter from a descendant of the family stating that it was left to her by her mother, Jane Gilman Hopkins. There is also a copy of her grandfather, Joseph T. Gilman's 1933 will which lists two swords that were the property of Nicholas Gilman during the American Revolution. Circa 1750-1770. The sword has a tapered triangular colichemarde blade, decorated with an engraved panoply of arms along with floral designs, red wool washer at top between blade and guard. The solid silver hilt is probably French, although it is unmarked. The guard is pierced and features floral designs and foliate scrolls. The knucklebow and pommel are decorated en suite. The grip is wrapped with braided silver wire and a thin sheet of silver. Also included in the lot is the Gilman family's King James bible, published in 1809. Inscribed on the flyleaf are at least two generations of Gilman family names. It also bears Nicholas Gilman's signature and an October 1810 date. The included copy of the 1933 will of Joseph Gilman describes a sword which was "....property of my great, great, uncle....who was Paymaster General on the staff of General Washington during the Revolutionary War....". CONDITION: Sword blade has much of original polish with some scattered spots of heavy brown patina on surface, especially near ricasso. One area near center has a couple minor creases. Hilt retains a polished surface with dark patina in all low or protected areas, with some residue of old polish. Grip has some exposed wood and wrap is somewhat loose. Bible is in very good condition. Some discoloration on pages from age, with some wear on spine and corners of cover. Folios are still well attached and text block shows only minor warping from age. A very historically significant grouping with excellent provenance.Blade Length: 32 - 1/4"Overall Length: 38 - 3/4"Paperwork: Catalog, Receipts, Provenance, History Condition: Dimensions:

For an identical example, see plate 78 on page 82 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords: Volume I" by Daniel D. Hartzler.

It probably dates to the third quarter of the 18th century or early 19th century and has a slightly curved blade with narrow single fuller along the top. The Top of the spine is stamped "W. ROSE". The hilt is sterling silver and there is a leather washer at the top of the blade. The stirrup hilt has a forward-curved quillon and pommel cap with integral silver backstrap.

The sword is complete with its original and unusual silver mounted black leather scabbard decorated with geometric designs. The top mount is inscribed with a large and decorative "H", as the example shown in the book is also inscribed. The unusual drag has a rolling brass wheel at the tip. The examples shown in the above mentioned book, obviously by the same maker, also have this feature. CONDITION: Blade retains much original polish with some scattered freckling and darker patina. Hilt is unpolished and retains a dark patina. Grip retains all of its original wire wrap. Leather scabbard shows some losses to finish, but is very good overall.

Lot #1121 (Sale Order 1121 of 763)

36" gently curving blade with partial double fuller running for approximately 3/4 of the length of the blade. Right side of the blade with "Mexico 1847", left side unmarked. Spine of blade with "(Crown) / RC / (Crown) / D / S & K". One branch of guard stamped with "(Crown) / D" proof. Gilded officer's braided copper wire wrap. Plain steel scabbard with two hangers and beautifully visible weld line. Drag with a "(Crown) / D" proof and "(S) & K" with the 'S' no longer visible. This rare saber is pictured and discussed on pages 374-375 of "Civil War Cavalry and Artillery Sabers" by Thillman, where he mentions that this sword is the only example he is aware of. While the only purchase of a cavalry officer's saber was for a Lieutenant R.L. Baker, Thillman is ambivalent on whether this is the same sword as it does not have Baker's name anywhere on it. CONDITION: The blade has been cleaned over scattered light pitting, leaving the "Mexico 1847" light but legible. Some gilding still visible in protected areas and in the "(Crown) / D" proof on guard. Guard with some nicks and scratches commensurate with use. Brass has taken on a lovely patina. Wire wrap is complete with 18 turns. Scabbard is good with scattered staining and a few extremely minor dents. This is a very rare sword that has spent time as part of the most serious collectors of U.S. swords.

RARE REGIMENTALLY MARKED MODEL 1801 VIRGINIA CONTRACT CAVALRY SABER.

Lot #1122 (Sale Order 1122 of 763)

This rare First Model Virginia Contract saber is patterned after the US Model 1798 cavalry saber. This sword is one of only 1,000 probably made by John Miles, Sr. of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1801, Miles purchased the Old Globe Mill from Robert McCormick. He sent two examples of the cavalry sabers to the Virginia Manufactory in 1801, prompting the State of Virginia to order 1,000 cavalry sabers with hussar hilts, delivered to John Shee at the Virginia Manufactory. Some of these swords went on to be used by the Confederacy during the Civil War and had their leather scabbards replaced with steel scabbards. In 1811, John Miles became the clerk at the US Arsenal in Philadelphia. For more information, see pages 42-43 of "Swords and Sword Makers of The War of 1812" by Richard H. Bezdek. Features include a slightly curved steel blade with single fuller on each side. The right side of the ricasso is stamped "1 REGT, VIRGA, / CAVALRY / DI-----IE (DINWIDDIE)". Heavy iron stirrup-Hussar hilt and wood. CONDITION: Blade retains a grey patina with scattered areas of darker grey patina and a few nicks to cutting edge. Markings show some wear, but are clearly visible. Grip shows age crack, scuffing and marks from use. A very rare and desirable historic Virginia sword, used in the War of 1812, and most likely again by the Confederates during the Civil War. DMG. PROVENANCE: From the Collection of George M. Rapport.Blade Length: 35 - 1/4"Overall Length: 41" Condition: Dimensions:

Reverse 'P' guard brass hilted saber. Curved, single edge blade with broad fuller. Bone grip. CONDITION: Poor to fair. Blade is plain, unstopped fuller, good edge and point, bright metal mixed with dark grey spots overall. Knucklebow and counterguard appear original to the sword, but the hilt was damaged at some point and a crude backstrap with integral ferrule at front was bent over the rear to form a pommel, anchor the blade tang and secure the end of the knuckleguard. The channeled bone grip shows chipping at the pommel and lengthwise crack on the obverse that has been filled. There is a short crack on the upper obverse near the guard as well. As repaired, the grip is stable. The repair seems to have some age. The brass may have been fashioned from original elements of the (damaged) hilt.

SIXTH NEW JERSEY MODEL 1850 PRESENTATION SWORD OF CAPTAIN JAMES HUGHES, W.I.A..

Lot #1141 (Sale Order 1141 of 763)

A very nicely inscribed presentation sword given to an officer wounded in action at Williamsurg, Virginia, in 1862. The sword is a Schuyler, Hartley and Graham marked US regulation model 1850 sword for officers of the staff and field. The brass hilt has the regulation cutout floral designs with a floating "US" in the counterguard. The pommel has a wreathed foliate design on its face and an American eagle in an oval surrounded by stars on the pommel cap. The grip has a regulation sharkskin wrap, shading from gray into white, bound with a single twisted brass wire. The knucklebow is cast and chased with floral designs for its entire length. The outer rim of the counterguard is professionally engraved, "Capt. James H. Hughes, Co. C, 6th Regt. N.J. Vol." The blade pad is in place under the guard. The blade is beautifully etched on either side for twenty inches from the guard, including the ricasso. The obverse bears a deeply stamped "1862" in a scroll and foliate panel, over which three bands of geometric and floral motifs cross the blade. Above that three sections of floral scrolls terminating in an Arabesque finial, provide two scenic panels. The uppermost is a stand or panoply of arms including sword, bayoneted muskets, flag, drum and halberd. The lower panel is a battle scene extending for seven inches. The leftmost portion shows a column of troops conducting an assault to the left. The right of the panel shows the troops from a different vantage point, charging to the right against an enemy gun emplacement. Soldiers with caps, knapsacks and bayoneted muskets are led by sword waving officers, two of whom on the right are mounted, one waving a striped flag with star in the canton. An enemy officer directs fire against them with his sword. One soldier on the ground points a pistol at the attackers, who overrunning the guns. The reverse has an etched ricasso with a central blank curved edge panel surrounded by mock Arabic lettering, over which the blade etching picks up with lattice and to designs. The Schuyler, Hartley and Graham firm name is etched in shield cartouche and carries an unusual "N.J." address. Foliat scrolls lead to a trophy or arms with muskets, cannon, cuirass, fasces, and banners on spearpoint poles. A broad, slanted "U.S." makes up the central panel, mixed with floral scrolls and three stars above, over which a somewhat startled looking bridled horse's head peers down, with pistol and sabers overhead and stirrups hanging below. The panel finishes with more floral scrolls and an Arabesque finial. The blued steel scabbard has cast and engraved mounts, all with deeply cast scroll upper and lower edges, and a plain brass throat. The drag has a small separately applied American eagle on the obverse, with floral motifs underneath and mixed floral and geometric designs on the reverse. The middle mount has trophy of arms with shield upon swords, axes, etc. The reverse is geometric and floral. The upper mount has a deeply cast and chased American eagle on the obverse and a "U.S." engraved on the reverse in a geometric border, as is the eagle on the face.Between the upper mounts is a silver plaque engraved, "Presented to / Capt. James H. Hughes / by/ Company C 6th Regt. N.J.V. / Passaic Guard Jersey City."Hughes enlisted 9 September 1861 as a Captain and was commissioned as of the same date. The regiment was brigaded with three other New Jersey regiments in what was known as the Second New Jersey Brigade and assigned to Hooker's Division of the Third Corps, Army of the Potomac. On 5 May 1862 Hooker caught up with Confederate forces retreating from Yorktown at Fort Magruder near Williamsburg. Hughes was wounded in action in a fierce, pitched battle that effectively opened the Peninsular Campaign, caused the regiment at least thirty-four battle deaths, and took a heavy toll among its officers. Hughes was compelled to resign his commission as result of his wounds on 11 July 1862. The respect in which Hughes was held by his men is told by the quality of this sword. Hughes has suffered some slight indignity at the hands of history, however: his middle initial was wrongly transcribed, and then spread, in some records as "B," causing some difficulty among researchers, but the general index card to his service record file has it right. CONDITION: Scabbard has lustrous blue shading slighly toward brown. The brass mounts are a reddish gold. The silver plaque is excellent. There are no dents or dings to the scabbard. The hilt matches the scabbard mounts in tone, though slightly subdued on the face of the guard. The blade etching on either side and along the back edge is crisp and legible though the frosting is soft. Minor gray spots among the etching. A few more on the obverse above the etched panel. Some gray and brown spots for three or four inches along the edge and some slight freckling just beyond the etching on the reverse. This is an impressive sword with a nice Army of the Potomac and New Jersey connecti
