Note: Emerson and Silver, like C. Roby, was another prolific company that made a brief appearance for the Civil War, then dried up. The company operated from 1860-1865, making 27,060 M1860 cavalry sabers, 3000 musician swords, 12,000 NCO swords, and an unknown number of light artillery sabers. The artillery sabers are mounted with blades similar to the cavalry sabers. The company only used two stamp styles for its swords federal government contracts. Cavalry sabers have an arc-shaped Emerson over a linear Silver/Trenton/NJ, as pictured, and NCO swords have the Emerson in the usual arc, with the Silver in a mirrored arc, creating an appearance like a convex lens. In 1863 and 1864, E&S also made M1840 cavalry sabers with '60 style grips for the state of New Jersey, with a distinct pattern of stamp that can be used to identify these swords.
