Z5595 J.E.B. Stuart Sword Hanger (E. Gaylord)
Description: Here is a nice leather sword hanger that was patented by J.E.B. Stuart while serving at Fort Riley, Kansas. Stuart was awarded Patent No. 25684 on October 4, 1859. With the flip of a single spring-loaded lever, the entire sword and hanger system could easily be removed from the belt. This piece was manufactured by E. Gaylord of Chicopee, Massachusetts. The oval inspector mark on the longer strap reads, "A.D. LAIDLEY / U.S. ORD. DEPT / INSPECTOR.” Each strap is folded and riveted to the hanger with a single copper rivet. Each strap end is folded over and held in place with a large brass rivet. The leather is still supple with some crazing and light flaking. Both sliding adjusters are still in place. These were used through the Civil War and on into the Indian War era. It’s important to note that the Indian War version is missing the spring-loaded lever. A great accoutrement for any Civil War or Indian War sword!
Measures: OAL 20.5” with ends of straps folded in place.
