Attractive and in very good condition with brilliant detailed Eagle pommel, twisted and then tightly wound wire covered grips that are tight to the blade. Almost no wear to the cast and chased hilt details. Blade has the Widmann hallmark...a "W" on the ricasso, a square spine, and each side is fire blued for about 1/3 to 1/2 the length with three floral and military engravings that have been gold wash highlighted of which over 90% is clear and vivid. There are minor loses to the bluing and spots of corrosion towards and at the tip that in no way detracts from the beauty of the blade. Scabbard is brass and was originally gilded as there are just the tiniest traces of the gold remaining that almost appear to be leaf rather than wash gilding. The tip, middle, and drag have chased engraved designs and there are a few shallow dents that do not seriously detract from the overall ambiance. This is a brilliant remnant of the decades preceding the Mexican War.
