Inscriber FORREST MARTIN HARRISON Etched M1852 U.S. Naval Officer’s Sword
Lieutenant Commander, M.C., U.S. Navy, M.D.
Here we present an Inscriber U.S. Model 1852 Naval Officer’s Sword, made circa the early 20th century by Jacob Reeds & Sons in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This sword is inscribed to Forrest Martin Harrison. Harrison was a Physician and a Lieutenant Commander in the Marine Corp of the U.S. Navy serving during World War II before passing away in 1957.
This sword bears visible resemblance to the Model 1850 Foot Officer’s Sword and is quite ornate. The blade is nicely etched with designs throughout. The guard bears the initial “USN” surrounded by oak leaves. The overall length is 33-1/2 inches with a 28 inch blade with Navy motifs and “Forrest Martin Harrison” etched into the blade. It has a gilt brass “USN” guard, a wire wrapped rayskin grip, and a leather scabbard with brass fittings marked “USN” and “FMH”.
The overall condition is fine. The blade is bright and nicely etched. Legible markings throughout. Solid hilt overall and the twisted brass wire remains tight. “FMH” is inscribed on the scabbard. Some of the stitching along the scabbard is fraying causing the leather to split.
