The M-1872 Mounted Artillery Officers
Saber is one of three swords or sabers produced at the Springfield
Armory and bearing the M-1872 designation. The saber has a highly
curved, bright and unmarked blade.
This M-1872 was produced in
small quantities from 1873 through 1902, with a total of 902
manufactured. The M-1872 Mounted Artillery
Officers Saber is not easily identifiable and great care should
be taken in acquiring this scarce and highly desirable saber.
