OLD SWORD WITH SCABBARD, IT LOOKS LIKE A CIVIL WAR  SHORT SWORD. I THINK IT MIGHT BE A OLD REPLICA, OR A REPRODUCTION SWORD  I DON'T THINK IT'S A REAL CIVIL WAR SWORD, IT WAS FOUND IN A OLD HOUSE I SOLD A LONG TIME AGO, THE SCABBARD WAS AND STILL IS ALL RUSTED AND HAS SPOTS ALL OVER IT, BUT WHEN I PULLED THE SWORD OUT IT WAS IN  GOOD CONDITION, BUT OVER TIME THE WIRE THAT IS ON THE HANDLE HAS COME LOOSE AND BROKE IN SOME PLACES, IT'S STILL ON THE PIECE BUT HAS COME LOOSE AND BROKE.  iT DO NOT SHOW IN THE PICTURE, IT HAPPEN AFTER THE PICTURES WAS TAKEN.   I HAVE HAD IT IN STORAGE FOR A LONG TIME. THE SCABBARD KEPT THE SWORD BLADE CLEAN AND IN GOOD CONDITION.  THE BLADE HAS A MARK ON IT I CAN'T TELL IF IT HAS --INLI--- OR INDI, BUT THOSE ARE THE ONLY MARKS I FOUND ON IT. THE SWORD IN THE SCABBARD IS ABOUT 28", THE SCABBARD ALONG IS ABOUT 24", THE SWORD IS ABOUT 27" THE BLADE ALONG IS ABOUT 22 1/2". IT'S OLD AND THE SCABBARD IS RUSTED, AND MIGHT HAVE SOME SCRATCHES ON THE BLADE. >>>>>>> SOLD AS IS <<<<<<<<

Early war production of a Cavalry Officer's sword by and marked: Collins & Co. / Hartford / Conn. Reverse ricasso marked with the date: 1861. This hilt is heavily gilded and very fancy both in casting design and in decorative embellishment. The grip is sharkskin wrapped with very fine twisted brass wire with a single strand on each side. The blade is a standard M1840 with the previously mentioned markings and no etched design. In the rush to produce early war sabers this seems quite logical.

PDL marked on the reverse ricasso and Tiffany NY on the obverse ricasso. Blade is somewhat dark and shows use by some small blade nicks.  Leather grip 80% with all twisted wire still present.  Steel scabbard unquestionably of the period but may not be a PDL product as it does not have proper screws at the throat normally seen on this style of saber.

1860 Model US Cavalry Sabre, Ames, Dated 1861
Sales enquiries
This is an early US Civil War cavalry sabre, made in 1861 when the war started, and has clear signs of use (multiple stirrup dings to the front of the scabbard) and some nicks to the cutting edge of the blade. The maker's name is virtually worn away from the sheathing and drawing of this sword. Marked US CCG (inspector G. G. Sanders) 1861. It has been around, and for sure has seen battle against the Southern Confederate States.




WILKINSON клейма



Wilkinsons DID supply completed swords to outfitters, tailors etc etc but NEVER sword parts such as blades. Replacement scabbard obviously YES but no components. Change over hilts YES but not separate Hilts. 
It was basically a complete sword or nothing.

The Proof marks used by Wilkinson were:
BEST PROVED @ £3-15-0 (HW in slug)
PROVED - OUTFITTER'S QUALITY @ £2-2-0
The OUTFITTERS QUALITY which were used for colonial contract swords as well as Outfitters who wouldn't pay the BEST PROOF price used a variety of slugs including
PROVED over a Crown -
PROVED over a Fleur de Lys
PROVED T

The Crown, Fleurs de Lys and T were in common use, the earliest being the Fleur de Lys (circa 1860's) followed by the Crown (circa 1880's) and the T (which stood for Tested rather than proved) in the 1870 period. 

In Observations on Swords from the 1870’s Wilkinson warned about other copying his proof marks. They also wanted to differentiate between their BEST PROOF and the others blades and came up with these designs. Immediately the other makers started using them, so Wilkinsons thought up another etc but by the early 20th century Wilkinsons just etched a fancy W in the double triangle on OUTFITTERS QUALITY sword so saving the cost of milling the hole for the proof slug.
Here are two lists of retailers supplied, one from an Index page and the other from the etching plates. 

The Name of the retailer would usually be on one side and Wilkinson Sword logo on the other and Wilkinson Number on the back of the blade for BEST PROOF swords which also had the HW proof slug.

For OUTFITTERS swords, the name of the retailer would appear with Wilkinson Logo, maybe a sword number on the back of the blade (Sometimes this may be the retailers order number as one finds with Hawkes swords etc) and one of the ordinary pattern proof slugs, depending on the date of the sword (see above) or after about 1910, just a W etched within the double triangle.

NOTE- This list is NOT exhaustive and there are others NOW-listed below in Word document. The names range in date from the 1870's onward and I apologise for any repetition with these two lists below

Wilkinson supplied all branches. They had one etch for the London, Camberly, Aldershot swords and one for the 'head office' Winchester swords.

Here are the etches from the Master Etching plates.

The Winchester etches are on plates circa 1890's but this cannot be taken as Gospel as the etchers often used up space on existing plates. The London Camberly and Aldershot etch is later, reflecting Flight becoming a Limited Company (Flights, Ltd) in 1920

LIST FROM NEW RESEARCH OF WILKINSON SWORD BLADE ETCHERS:-

The earliest Proof slip with a printed notification of "embossed"ie etched is 5541 date
2/11/54.*

The names that dominate from then are*
Howell,* (corrected 21/1/12)
Pearsall,*
Randall,*
Friskney,
Appleby,*
W.F. & Co.,*
R. & Co.(Reeves & Co.?)*
Pike*

but unfortunately many are just initials.

Henshaw (1844-1854 -he died in that year)is not mentioned as pre Numbered Proof dockets.


The earliest mention of**Rowe is 2 June 1855 for blade 6583.

Rowe is recorded etching *blade 6262 but this was embossed at the
later date of 30 April 1859, it was proved on 10 April 1855.

Rowe appears only occasionally in the 1850's *so he might be an apprentice.*(Just a guess)he appears on 8678 (1857), 9478 (1858), 9931(1859)
11038 (1860), - Also in 1860 (11039),*3281 (1864) is Rowe,*112611 (1865) is Rowe. 18058 (1871) is Rowe. After 1873 Rowe seems to have the stage ti himself although with blank dockets is is difficult to say for sure if freelance etchers were bought in. *We do know that Argll joined in 1885.

Peardsall still etching as well as Randall (11095 -1861)

13432 0f 1864 is Kerkhoff(?),*

13935 (1865) is Appleby as is 24444 (1866) and 14966 (1867) as well as 17292(1871) as is 19031 (1873)

Rowe spent 42 years with Wilkinson so retiring in the late 1890's (?)

Argyll 1885-1945
J Riley 1910-1930
C Web 1938-1969
Adamovitch 1961-1983
