Civil War M1840 Medical Staff Officer sword, rare maker!


1 in stock



This is a very honest example of the standard Civil War US Medical Staff (Surgeon) sword with original scabbard.  The maker name is Virgil Price who manufactured blades only from 1851-1864 in New York City.  This sword has the standard “MS” on the outer guard and the etching “Medical Staff” on the blade as well as Masonic emblems.  This is a pretty scarce variant which has a brass mounted leather scabbard, unlike most, which have brass scabbards.  There is a tiny bit of shrinkage but the blade fits well and the leather is unbroken.
