An original old Civil War period Officers sword. A French made 1855 style, Rose Pattern, Klingenthal marked. Missing original scabbard, it did, however, come with is wooden scabbard. These generic pattern swords were mostly used by the Confederates. No history came with it, but it does have remnants of writing on the blade done in red paint and a fine hand.
Perhaps a presentation or a historical note, I can not make it out. Overall typical condition, missing the wire on the grip.
