I was told that this was a 1912 cadet saber from the Naval Academy at Annapolis. The leather tassel braid affixed to the grip is crumbling with age but the sword and sheath are in mint condition. I've taken a close up of the manufacturer's mark. A friend whose son was a midshipman had to pay $1,000 for a modern saber in the 1980's when I acquired this. It's been kept in a motheaten felt sleeve and is pristine. If you're interested, please send your telephone number and I'll respond. If not, I delete scammers. Cash ONLY.
