Brass hilt with pierced floral guard as used by Boyle & Gamble (Albaugh fig.7). Wire wrapped sharkskin grip. Canted pommel as Albaugh fig.84 (“unknown maker”), hand engraved decoration and with the edge modified to fit the grip. 31 ½” d.e. European blade with inset proof. It is estimated that over a million swords were produced for the Confederacy, in Europe, by descent through the militias and by Southern makers. Of these last, many varieties and combinations are recorded. As virtually no records of production or delivery exist, there is an element of speculation for all Confederate swords save those with a provenance of service to a specific owner.
