This is a great looking original Civil War era short pattern artillery sword. These were patterned after the Roman gladiator swords with the fierce look like you see in the movies. The blade is full-length with the maker’s mark of the Ames Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Massachusetts on the back of the blade still clearly visible. It has the large straight line stamping with the eagle that is from their earlier production years when they were in Springfield. These were made by Ames from 1832 until 1862. The front of the blade has the "UNITED SSTATES” stamp with the production date of "1835". The Ames book states that they only delivered 2,800 of these swords in 1835. The handle is made of cast brass and has the fish scale design with the droop wing eagle at the top of the pommel. On the side of the underside of the crossguard it has the inspector initials of "H.K.C.” stamped into the brass. This is the initials of the inspector Henry Knox Craig who approved the sword for service. The sword is accompanied by a nice original brass and leather scabbard that is in very fine shape. The leather is solid with the stitching on the back side having separated over the years. This is a very nice looking 1835 Dated Ames artillery short sword in the original scabbard.
