Model 1840 Light Artillery Saber
The blade is approximately 31 1/2 inches long. The blade is relatively bright, with a number of small nicks and scratches to the cutting edge. The grip remains covered in leather with twisted brass wire wrapping. The brass guard and pommel have a somewhat bright patina. The ricasso is faintly stamped with the “U.S.” designation and a year date which cannot be completely read beyond “186_”. The number “64” is stamped into each side of the guard. The steel scabbard is mostly smooth and grey, no dents.
