This sword is from my dad's collection. He had in his notes that it was a Confederate engineers sword. It has no markings other than "Deo Vindice" on the drag and CS on the guard. The only thing I know about ID'ing fake swords is the five minutes I skimmed one of his books on the subject. I know one tell is the scabbard rings and this one does look like it has the proper rings. He was pretty sure it was genuine. I just wanted to make sure and if it is see if anyone had any other info on it.
