Rare Confederate Naval Cutlass Associated With CSS Florida and CSS Texas
These “special” unique cutlasses have been known by Confederate collectors for a very long time.
31″ Overall, 25.5″0 heavy “machete” like blades, cast brass basket with 3 branches, hand fitted sculpted split wood grip secured with sculpted full tang secured by 3 iron pins. These cutlasses have good Confederate provenance and attribution.
Retired USN Commander Jerry Roxbury USN wrote a wonderful in depth 2018 monograph for American Society of Arms Collectors detailing their history. He shows a near wartime photograph of souvenir 12 star secession flag with one of these cutlasses attached with cord.
