This is a pleasing looking original and classic Civil War artillery saber. This is the classic mounted artillery sword that was used during the Civil War. It has the long sweeping curved blade. As you can see the blade on the sword has a good look with a very attractive light tone. The base of the sword blade has the production date of "1863” to go along with the inspector initials of "A.D.K.” and the "US” stamp. On the back of the blade you can still read some traces of the maker’s mark of "AMES MFG. CHICOPEE, MASS”. Often these Ames marks are very lightly stamped from the factory and no longer visible but you can see this one. The brass guard and pommel cap are intact with a fine look to the brass. The handle has a nice untouched look with the original leather and wire remaining. They have a fine used but never abused look all over. The sword is accompanied by the original metal scabbard that has the throat and drag present as well as both of the rings and mounts. The scabbard has a pleasing brown tone to the metal. This is a very attractive looking original 1863 dated Civil War artillery saber and scabbard.
