Blade has a single wide fuller with a single narrow fuller near the spine. Blade is etched over half its length with numerous military, patriotic & foliate motifs on a gold field. There is a panel near the ricasso on a gold field that reads “WH HORSTMANN & SONS PHILADELPHIA”.

The ricasso is marked with a king’s head indicating manufactured by Gebruder Weyersberg. Heavily gilded hilt with 2 branch semi-basket guard adorned with foliate motifs. Highly embellished pommel with American eagle on the face. Silvered grip spirally wrapped with 3 section brass wire.

Silver finished scabbard with gilded brass mounts. This sword is interesting because it has a Horstmann blade and an obvious Clauberg hilt. Possibly a special order or the blade was replaced
