Identified US Officer’s Parade Sabre, ca. 1900
Nickel-plated 4-branch guard; stepped pommel with backstrap bearing owner’s name "W.P. EDGERTON U S(?) A". Nickel plating flaking and worn. Dark wood grip, never had wrap. Slightly curved 31" double fullered blade with clipped point; etched "ARTIA D TOLEDO" one side and "ANO D 1860" on reverse. Nickel-plated steel scabbard with two carrying rings (pitted and areas of nickel-plating lacking). The sword resembles the US M1902 General Officer’s Sword, except it has double carrying rings, a feature generally found only up to about 1880, and it is Spanish made. There are several W. P. Edgerton’s in US service of note, including a prominent artillery officer of the 1880's and a famous WWII B-24 bomber pilot. Worthy of further research.
