Roby made M1860 US Civil War Cavalry Sabre,
In good condition, a US Civil War M1860M cavalry sabre made by
Roby, dated 1864.
Guarantee authentic, this is a less common maker than the normal
Ames, the forte / ricasso marked "C Roby, W Chelmsford, Mass"
one side, "US 1864 AGM" (inspection mark) the other.
The 35 inch blade is aged but in very good shape and firm in the
hilt / guard. The leather grip is original but has lost its grip
wire (a replacement is quite easily made with brass wire and a drill
at slow speed). Overall, above average.
An iconic "long knives" cavalry sabre. Yours for just
£xxx (too late - now sold - but we will advise original sales
price for a small fee). Please quote item reference AA05 (0004).
