Rare PS Justice Cavalry Officer Saber.  The Ordinace dept ordered 174 sabers from this company at the start of the war and were not inspected in any way.  This particular saber is not marked PS Justice but based on construction it is a Justice product.  What is unknown is if it was part of the US order or possibly a private officer purchase.  First off this is a saber that saw a lot of use in service.  If you are looking for a pretty saber then this is not for you.  If you want a saber in field used condition and has great attic patina look no further.   The guard is plain brass as Justice officer sabesr were.  It has a sharkskin wrap and wire.  As can be seen 40% of the grip wrap is missing in various sections and the wood core has a nice dark patina.  Washer is present.  Blade is unetched and a short version which is typical of this makers officer sabers.  The blade is stained, gray and show prior nicks, chips and possible sharpening that is not unusual for a heavily used saber.  The steel scabbard is in fine condition with plain but worn retention bands and a heavily used drag.  The scabbard mounts and drag construction are once again very specific to PS Justice sabers.  This is a good looking saber for the money that you know for sure saw a lot action.
