The tongue on the eagle sword belt plate is flattened to the back of the plate. the sword has some nicks in the blage edge and the overall sword has a great patina as do both plates. The hilt has a bit of a shake with the blade. This has been in a private collection for decades and originally obtained from the family. Daniel Duesler was in Company B of the Chandler Horse Guards from August 18, 1861 to November 22, 1861, mustering out in Coldwater, Mi.
