    Pattern 1841 Naval Officers' Sword of Henry Tingey Wingate LT US Navy

    Here is the latest addition to my Naval Sword collection. The condition is a bit rough but I think it will clean up nicely.

    These are hard to find any more. It looks like it should clean up nicely. Thanks for showing.

    That is a terrific addition for any naval sword collection. Amazing to see such a complete scabbard and I hope the blade is more than presentable. Too often one or both of the counterguards are missing.

    These are indeed few and far between and (I think) factored by the relatively small number of US naval officers of the time.

    Cheers

    ps
    I just wanted to add that going by the wear on the inboard, it was a carried sword. I see some of the bio out there and look forward to a complete report on the man during his service.

    Died in 1854, buried at Mt Auburn cemetery (I was just there recently)
