1860 Model US Civil War Cavalry Trooper's
Sabre by Roby, Sold
In good condition, an 1860 Model US Civil War Cavalry Trooper's
Sabre by Roby.
Dated 1865, this is a guaranteed authentic 1860 Model US Civil
War Cavalry Trooper's Sabre made by Roby of Massachusetts.
The 34 7/8 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the
hilt. The hilt a little dull with age but good. The grip leather
has lost a little of its surface, but not a lot, although most of
the grip wire is gone. Steel scabbard zealously "cleaned",
a couple of kinks one side, another the other, a rust hole near
the chape / drag, a small split along one seam near the lower suspension
ring, but overall sound. The sabre sheathes and draws a little loosely
but well enough for most people.
Nice authentic example. A snip at £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference AE18 (0683). Further / full sized images
available upon request.
