The Halberstadt Sabre trophy, 1951.  This sabre was presented to the winner of the 1951 Halberstadt Sabre competition, Salvatore Giambra.  In all, Giambra won the event 5 times.  Each year for this event, Hans Halberstadt would create a unique guard for the sabre trophy.  Four of Giambra’s first place sabres are in the Archive’s permanent collection thanks to a generous donation from his daughter.  The fifth resides in the archives of San Francisco’s Olympic Club.
