Excavated Model 1840 Cavalry Sword
This is one super cool relic - a complete excavated Model 1840 Cavalry sword. It was dug on private property with permission at Brandy Station, VA. The Battle of Brandy Station was the largest cavalry engagement of the war pitting Federal forces under the command of General Alfred Pleasanton against Confederate forces under the command of General J.E.B. Stuart at the start of the Gettysburg campaign. This sword is in great relic condition with the only flaw being a bent tine on the guard possibly from a horse falling on top of it during the engagement. This could be the centerpiece of any dug relic collection. You won't see another one of these for a long, long time.
