This is a tough to find sword! It is an original 1818 pattern United States sword for the Non-Commissioned Officer. This is the pattern illustrated at the top of Page #70 of the Historic American Sword book by Howard Crouch. They have the straight 25-1/2 inch blade with a single edge and a wide fuller. This blade is full length and is well marked at the base of the blade. It is marked "N.STARR" as well as "US". It also has the inspector proof mark "P" and the inspector initials of "LS" that stands for the inspector Luther Sage. These were made by Nathan Starr of Middleton, Connecticut. He was one of the premier sword makers in early U.S. history. The grip of the sword has the original wooden core present with a some of the original leather. The iron hand guard still has nice curves and an attractive look. This one is missing the scabbard. The scabbards are almost always missing with this pattern of sword because they bend easily and were discarded. This is a good looking untouched U.S. non-commissioned officer's sword and it is very well marked on the blade.
