    Civil War Sword 1850 Staff officers Sword Scabbard

    Hello
    I picked this sword up and it is a typical 1850, but the scabbard is etched.
    Was this common for the scabbards to be etched?
    Thank you very much
    Tony

    Just a note: this is not etched but engraved.

    Tony,

    Hand engraving such as this was an extra cost option but it is not uncommon. This appears to be an 1850 Foot Officer sword to me rather than an 1850 S&F Officer sword which had fancy edged scabbard mounts and a "US" cast into the obverse guard.

    I hope this helps.
