Need info on sellers of 1833 Dragoon Saber
I am wanting to reenact and interpret both 1830s and 1840s US Dragoons and Civil War Cavalry. Therefore I am looking at purchasing an 1833 Dragoon saber since it is quite versatile. But, I am trying to find companies that sell reproductions that look correct. I do not really plan on clanking sabers, but you never know so I need something that will also be able to take a little, but not much, abuse. I do know that the original sabers on the blades have "United States" where the repros I have found say "United States Dragoons," which is fine.
