Pair of Original Civil War Model 1860 Union Light Cavalry SabersPair of Original Civil War Model 1860 Union Light Cavalry Sabers mounted on a shield-shaped plaque. One is marked “Ames” and dated 1865, the other is by Mansfield & Lamb and is dated 1864. Both sabers retain all of the wire binding on leather wrapped grips that show crazing. The brass guards have a dark patina with one having some white corrosion. The blades have light to heavy rust that should clean leaving small areas of pitting. The blades appear to have been soldered together where they cross. These will make a fine decoration as is or cleaned up. RR Auction COA.
