M 1850 Foot Officer Sword - Sharkskin Scabbard.  This is an attic condition Foot Officer sword with great patina.  Guard is standard Foot Officer casting.  Sharksin grip an wire are in good condition with no issues.  Blade etch is string but no frost remains. Blade has taken on a gray patina. Obverse blade has the Kings head for Wyersburg.  Etch has W.H. Horstman and Sons Philadelphia / stand of arms / stand of arms / Eagle with EPU ribbon / foliate.  Reverse balde has a 79 stamped on the ricasso.  Very odd and not sure why this would be here as Horstmann did not usually use parts #'s like some manufacturers.  Reverese blade etch is stand of arms / US / stand of arms-foliate.  Scabbard is a higher grade sharkskin and is in very good condition.  THe mounts as well as the drag have the same deep brown-reddish color as the guard.  The blade condition isn't great but this sword displays very well.   Great patina color you only get from long storage with no cleaning.
