Model 1840 Musician Sword

DR4004. Model 1840 Musician sword dug at Chancellorsville, measures 21.75" long with 17" being the blade which has heavy pitting, but is strong and stable, the hilt has taken a severe blow that tore away the pommel cap and the the end of the lower quillon, the end of the tang is bent at a 90 degree angle and there is a corresponding notch torn into the grip, I can't imagine the pommel cap being torn away by anything other than a bullet or artillery hit, it is out of a well known collection, great dug weapon with a lot of character
