M1840 Tiffany Iron Guard enlisted cavalry saber
Maker: PDL / Tiffany
Size: 36 inch 1 1/4 w
Tiffany Iron Guard enlisted cavalry saber manufactured by PDL. Heavy M1840 imported by Tiffany from PDL in Solingen. PDL made some of the finest saber of the civil war and Tiffany's use indicates this fact. . PDL marked on the reverse ricasso and Tiffany NY on the obverse ricasso. Blade is somewhat dark and shows use by some small blade nicks. Leather grip 80% with all twisted wire still present. Steel scabbard unquestionably of the period but may not be a PDL product as it does not have proper screws at the throat normally seen on this style of saber.
