Is this a "Dog River" Sword? I need help

Recommended Posts

I found this at a local estate sale this week, I had no idea what it was when I bought it, I believe this is a Confederate "Dog River" sword, can anyone here confirm that? No markings on the blade which is crudely made. Thanks for the help!

I dont think its a dog river. Typical Dog River would have an unstopped fuller, obvious seam on the scabbard, sometimes a lapped seam and brass scabbard throat, hanger, and drag. With crude workmanship the blades typically have carbon faults and sometimes are wavey. I think you have a heavy Cav or whats referred to as a ole wrist breaker . A google search should give you some images to look at. Hope this helps.

I agree, not a Confederate made sword. Most likely a generic Yankee heavy cavalry saber.
