Sword, stirrup hilt

Stirrup hilted sword, which belonged to the Chief Officer of the Coast Guard Charles H. Spencer (active 1883-1894). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt stirrup guard with langets. The langets are embossed with a motif consisting of a crown over a garter encircling an anchor. The sword has a fluted pommel and back-piece, which has two straight lines running down it. The sword has a black fish-skin grip. The slightly curved, pipe-backed, steel blade has a double-edged spear point. The obverse of the blade is engraved with the words 'Charles Spencer Chief Officer Coast Guard 1879'.
