US Model 1860 Staff and Field Blade etched with US eagle
The blade is straight and double-edged towards the point. It is also etched with floral decorations, crossed lances and a US eagle. During its service lifetime it appears that the blade was broken and has been re-attached - the quality of the work looks to indicate a contemporary repair - would be interesting to know the history of this sword! No scabbard. Blade length is 30 inches (36.5 inches overall).
