This scabbard is for a Model 1902 American officer's sword. While rusty, it is in very good solid condition and has no holes, breaks, dents, bends, or repairs. It measures as follows:
Overall scabbard length: 31 1/8" long
Width of the throat (outside): 1 5/16" long x 11/16" wide
Width of the throat (inside): 15/16" long x 15/16" wide
Space between the ring bands (inside edges): 3 3/8"
Space between the ring bands (outer edges): 3 15/16"
Top of the throat collar to top of upper ring band: 2 7/8"
Top of the throat collar to the bottom of the lower ring band: 6 13/16"
Ring size (outer edge diameter): 1 1/16"
Ring size (inner edge diameter): 3/4"
I was advised that it was found near the Manassas or Bull Run battlefield in the 1950's. According to Steve Schmidt, author of "Swords and Sabers of the Union Army, Exhibition Catalogue", and many other published sword related articles, it was this pattern "that replaced the Model 1860 Staff & Field Officer's Sword that had been around for over 40 years" and "It doesn't surprise me that it could have been found in the 1950s at Manassas, as soldiers often visited earlier battlefields for both pleasurous sightseeing and military training."
Should you have a Model 1902 American officer's sword missing its scabbard, this scabbard will be an excellent addition.
