Regimentally Marked Virginia Manufactory Artillery Saber

30" curved, single-edged blade with rudimentary false edge, a 25.5" median fuller and narrow 22" fuller near spine. 5" hilt with bird's head pommel, reverse P-guard, and forward swept quillon at top terminating in a flat round finial. Grooved wooden, leather covered grip with 8 wraps of twisted wire. Spine marked 13, Va REGT. No scabbard. Only 2,040 Virginia Manufactory artillery sabers were produced, in three production runs, ca 1806-1810, ca 1813-1814 and in 1821. Virginia Manufactory cavalry saber production exceeded 8,200 swords, making the artillery variant a much rarer Virginia Manufactory item and difficult to find for sale.


Good. Blade chemically cleaned to a dull gray color with evenly distributed pitting over the entire surface. Hilt similarly colored and pitted, leather wrap with wear and loss.

Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500
