An unusual and scarce US Civil War Horstmann Model 1821 Infantry Officer's Sword. This is a scarce US Civil War infantry officer's sword and is based on the French Model 1821 Infantry Officer's Sword but is fitted with a US Horstmann and Sons blade. Hilt has simply crafted decoration - am supposing that this is a Horstmann copy of the contemporary French infantry officer's model as it does not seem as crisp as the French imports and is also probably pre-Civil War.
Named to Horstmann on blade forte
It is stamped to Horstmann and Philadelphia to both sides of the. The sword comes complete with its original steel scabbard. In good overall condition with a well toned blade. The twistwire is absent from the grip. Blade with very light peppering in places. Blade length is 31.5 inches (38 inches overall).
