One of the finest condition Tiffany Swords known by either John Thilmann or myself, this sword was front and center in Dick Johnson's home for many years under a glass case. It is historically inscribed on a mounted silver plaque on the scabbard body as presented to Robert A. Hutchins for gallantry at South Mountain, Antietam and Fredericksburg. The entire sword is near mint with deluxe, gold-gilted hilt (with Roman Soldier Armor Motifs) mounts and drag. The grip and scabbard body are silver. The case contains Hutchins' sword sash and sword belt as well as a gold mounted riding crop, also with inscribed presentation to Hutchins, a gold-bullion sword knot and brass belt plate with the numeral "7", depicting the New York National Guard Unit that presented him with this spectacular sword. I can't say enough about how impressive this sword is in person. Hutchins had great history and there is a large volume of material about him that accompanies the cased sword. Everything about this set is nearly new condition. This is undoubtedly one of the finest Museum Quality Tiffany Swords to come on the market in years. THIS SWORD IS FROM THE RICHARD JOHNSON COLLECTION WHICH HAS ITS OWN SECTION ON THIS WEBSITE. TO SEE THE ENTIRE COLLECTION, RETURN TO THE HOME PAGE AND CLICK ON THE GREEN, "RICHARD JOHNSON" ICON.
