Very Rare Thomas, Griswold New Orleans “CA” Officer Sword
The unique pattern of which very few examples are documented are much larger than normal CS or US foot or staff officer swords, 33″ long, 1.25″ very wide blade with light indistinct etching.
Classic New Orleans features: split seam pommel cap, 2 piece constructed knucklebow, pen-knife like ricasso, plain flat undecorated sides to quillon.
The “CA” is in fancy script and possibly denotes “Crescent Artillery” of New Orleans. Scabbard is for display only and is well crafted New Orleans style recreation.
