M 1850 Staff and Field.  Fine sword by a great maker.  Henry Sauerbier of Newark New Jersey.  You know this is a CW sword as he only made swords during the Civl War and this was carried by the wear in the rings.  Guard is standard Staff and field vrsion with cast US but is a higher grade version with great casting, a lot of hand chasing on the outside guard, knuckle bow and also mother of pearl inserts in the pommel cap and flat of the pommel.  Grip is leather with twisted wire and flanking wires.  Sauerbier primary used leather in officer swords and finding a sword with a sharskin grip is actually quite rare.  Pinked washer is present and the screw holding the knucklebow into the pommel is present.  Both Sauerbier traits that point to Sauerbiers work without his name etched on the blade. Blade is not frosty but is bright with strong etch.  Obverse etch has foliate with a star design / foliate / stand of arms and finishes with foliate.  Reverse etch has folaite star/ foliate / US  and finishes with foliate.  Steel scabbard is in great condition with a nice patina.  Again the throat, mounts and drag have distinct Sauerbier construction and it is original to the sword.
