This excavated Model 1860 Federal Cavalry saber & scabbard is securely mounted to a 3/4 x 11-1/4 x 44 inch wood plank. Believed to have been recovered in Tennessee, the saber is complete with the exception of its leather washer, grip wrap and wire. Its brass guard and pommel have aged into a very pleasing dusty green patina and are in excellent condition however the pommel is slightly loose. The blade is in very good condition with only light rust and pitting. The fact that the tang of the blade is clearly more weathered than the blade itself indicates that the saber was likely recovered while still inside the scabbard. The edge of the blade has a few small nicks. The iron scabbard is complete with both mounts and rings. While the surface of the scabbard is moderately rusted, it is still solid, and there are a few small holes in the scabbard between the upper mount and throat opening. There are also a couple of tiny holes in the scabbard just above the lower mount. Both saber and scabbard are secured to the board by matching green wire. There is a plaque affixed to the center bottom of the board that reads "MODEL 1860 CAVALRY SABER". This relic will be an excellent display piece for any den, family room, or office as well as a great addition to any excavated Civil War Cavalry, battlefield, or general relic collection.
