Sergeant's sword/sash/baldrick, side knife, and buff set for sale
Cleaning the closet of items I don't need to pay debts I don't need.
First up is pretty much all the core equipment you need for a sergeant's impression. WE have:
1. Original M1840 NCO Sword, marked Ames Company, Chicopee, Mass, and 186- (no final digit) with a US above on the opposite side. Got this off ebay from a reenactor who had already shined it up. Blade shows some staining consistent with age. Comes with reproduction scabbard. Sword blade is 32", overall length is 38"
2. NCO baldrick, made from blackened buff and purchased a few years ago from Don Smith. Includes proper buckle courtesy of S&S Sutler
3. Scarlet NCO sash, purchased off ebay. Standard quality.
Total price for the set is $475 including shipping within the Continental US by USPS priority mail
Second is a side-knife from Old Dominion Forge. Pressed horn pistol-style grip, perfect for your civilian or early military impression. Blade is 8.5", overall 13.5." Price is $275 shipped within the Continental US.
Finally we have a set of buff accoutrements. I bought these as buff but suspect they may be very high quality split latigo-- not the type of the sutler-row cardboard-like stuff. Set assembled by Mike Cemancick. Belt measures 45" overall and features a Mississippi militia buckle by Parsley Brass. Includes waist belt, cartridge box sling, and bayonet with buff frog. Price for set is $80 shipped within the Continental US. Extra for shipping if you want this in time for Manassass
