Mexican Officer Cavalry Saber Circa 1820 (SW1375)
A very fine Mexican Cavalry Officer’s Sword for an officer of either Dragoons or Cuirassiers, with a long, straight blade, mounted in German silver, an alloy of brass and nickel. The pommel has a shell design on its top. The grip is sharkskin, with two twisted copper wires wrapping the grip. The blade is long and straight, and beautifully etched, with trophies of arms, florals, and a Mexican Eagle atop a cactus, with a serpent in its beak. The blade has a single fuller that runs most of the way down the blade. The German silver scabbard has a steel toe to the drag.
