Scarce College Hill Nashville Tennessee Confederate Multi Branch Officer’s Sword
29″ unstopped fuller blade with pen knife type ricasso characteristic to College Hill, Nashville TN made swords.
This same hilt is seen on Houston Texas made swords and I have always wondered what happened to operation after Nashville fell as these hilts are almost identical in design to JC Wilson of Houston, TX.
Unique smooth muti branch guard, plain quillon, plain undecorated pommel cap. This exact word is pictured on page 137 of “American Swords & Makers’ Marks” 1999 by C. D. Furr.
