Item #: BQ3268 -- An M1840 Tiffany Iron Hilted Cavalry Saber -- $910.00
A scarce federal variant of the M1840 "wristbreaker" with triple branched iron guard. The full uncleaned blade is clearly stamped at the ricasso with Tiffany & Co. New York and P.D.L. (P.D. Luneschloss) to the reverse. A fine example with a few tiny period nicks in the blade and undented scabbard. The grip leather is about 60% intact; all of the original twisted brass wire is present. A great Civil War veteran that has not been tampered with over the years. 111cm. overall in scabbard.
