RARE AND FINE CONFEDERATE NAVAL OFFICER'S SWORD.

Lot 1405: RARE AND FINE CONFEDERATE NAVAL OFFICER'S SWORD.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $40,000 - $50,000

Description: This is among the very finest examples of a very rare Confederate regulation pattern sword with probably less than 20 examples known by both manufacturers. This sword retains almost all of its orig gilt and luster. The 30-1/4" blade exhibits 18-1/2" etched panels showing cotton plants and patriotic naval motifs such as crossed cannons superimposed over a fluted anchor and a Confederate first national flag superimposed over a fluted anchor. This sword also has etched maker's mark "FIRMIN & SONS, 153 STRAND & 13 CONDUIT ST, LONDON". The correct scabbard has decoration of naval knots attaching sword rings and the drag has intertwined snakes, which is unique to this pattern. The hilt on this sword is decorated in the basket with cotton and tobacco surrounding an oval medallion with a fluted anchor superimposed over crossed cannons. Shark skin grip is wrapped with triple wire protected by a backstrap representing a sea serpent or dolphin with a scaled back. Very rarely are these swords ever seen in such high condition and this is no doubt the finest specimen we have ever offered; though a very fine example made by Mole with South Carolina agents marking was sold on these floors in the Fall of 2012. CONDITION: Blade exhibits most all of its orig luster, etched panels are bright and clear, as can be seen in photos, with small scattered areas of staining and pinprick pitting. Brass hilt and backstrap retain about 90% of their orig gilt with scattered areas of staining, as can be seen in photos. Shark skin grip is complete, showing light wear at the high spots. Copper wire is complete and tight. Scabbard is sound and solid retaining most of its original black dyed surface, there is a weak area with crazing and scuffing at junction of scabbard body and drag. Scabbard mounts retain about 60-70% orig gilt with scattered storage scratches. 8-76403

HIGHEST GRADE AMES CIVIL WAR FOOT OFFICERS SWORD PRESENTED TO CAPT HENRY F. METZLER, COMPANY E. 71st REGIMENT N.Y.S.M.

Lot 1379: HIGHEST GRADE AMES CIVIL WAR FOOT OFFICERS SWORD PRESENTED TO CAPT HENRY F. METZLER, COMPANY E. 71st REGIMENT N.Y.S.M.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $18,000 - $25,000

Description: Among Ames foot officer swords, this is the highest grade you will find. Hilt has fine chasing and additional engraving to perimeters of knuckle bow and diameter of crown of pommel. This sword exhibits the fanciest, finely detailed etched blade seen on Ames exhibiting extraordinary large coverage with panels about 25" and mottoes on either side "VINCIT AMOR PATRIA" and "AMERICAN GUARD". This sword retains an unique fancy leather scabbard embossed to emulate sharkskin with raised relief gilted scabbard mounts with throat marked "Ames Mfg. Co/Chicopee/Mass". Sword also has an exquisite solid brass scabbard with large engraved patriotic panel terminating with Liberty Cap and panoply of arms. There is an engraved presentation "Capt Henry F. Metzler, Company E. 71st Regiment N.Y.S.M., by the members of his command January 2, 1860". This sword most likely originally was cased which held both embossed leather brass mounted scabbard and fancy engraved solid brass scabbard. The 71st New York State Militia was founded in the 1850's and saw action in some early battles of the Civil War. The 71st remains a militia unit in New York City and provided soldiers for the Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, and the Korean Conflict. This sword shows little if any use and no doubt is among the very finest examples known. CONDITION: Brass scabbard mounts and hilt exhibit most of their orig bright gold plating with scattered areas of staining, especially to soldered areas where raised relief mounts were attached. Often these soldered mounts are missing or restored, however this example is complete, though the 4.25" long gilded foliate soldered decoration is loose at lower end. There are areas of iridescence on obverse of top brass mounts on leather scabbard. 30-1/2" blade retains most of their lustrous 25" etched panels with light areas of staining and oxidation. Sword retains its orig leather buff washer. Grip retains all of its orig sharkskin grip, with typical separation and some light colored areas at the high points as can be seen in photos. 4-48091
