War Of 1812 Dragoon Saber For Sale

This large dragoon saber is an early example of American swords in the War of 1812 era. The sword is similar to the Starr contract of 1808 for militia cavalry, the exception being the hilt is brass. As seen from the photographs this blade is very sharply curved. The blade is 36" long x 1 1/2" wide and has a single wide fuller that extends to within 9" of the tip. The sword is 40 1/2" long overall and is in excellent condition. The blade is grey mottled color with rust pitting near the ricasso and at the very end of the tip. The unusual feature of the sword is that it is marked on the top of the blade similar to the Virginia manufactured swords with the mark "S.C.1". This usually would denote State of Connecticut property and possibly a regiment number. The grip is leather covered and is all intact. It shows no sign of wire. There are several small areas where the leather is missing on the grip as can be seen in the photograph. The hilt is of brass and shows a nice unpolished patina. There is no scabbard. This is a real serious dragoon saber.
