U.S. Model 1860 Staff and Field Officer sword.
marked by WM Read & Sons Boston Mass. Approx 30"
Overall nice condition plain blade. A wear mark on
portion of one side of scabbard. Good condition handle.
Overall a nice sword. Typically, the 1860 Staff and Field
Officer’s sword was more a badge of rank than a weapon. In 1872
the M-1860 sword was expanded for use by all Army officers except
medical officers, paymasters, and mounted officers. The Model
1860 Staff and Field officer sword was eventually replaced by the Model
1902 Officers Saber........$450.
