This is a very attractive non-regulation cavalry officers sword. It has a relief cast eagle and seven stars in the guard. The blade again is a European import with an unstopped fuller. It is engraved with an American eagle / US / Flags and trophies. The scabbard is iron with engraved brass mounts and drag.

 Bottom

This is a model 1850 staff and field officers sword. It is included here with the cavalry officers sword because it has a curved cavalry style blade. This was obviously made for a mounted officer. Blade is etched with trophies, stacks of arms and floral decorations and is marked W. H. Horstmann / & Sons / Philadelphia. Scabbard is iron with brass mounts.
