This is cool excavated 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 pitting from the years in the ground. It also has the bend to the lower few inches of the blade and it is priced accordingly. At one time the blade would have had the maker’s mark of the Ames Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Massachusetts on the back of the blade. It would have had 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 STATES” stamp with the production date of 1841 still clearly visible. The blade also has the inspector initials of "WS" of William Smith who inspected swords from 1825 until 1841. The handle is made of cast brass and has the fish scale design with the droop wing eagle at the top of the pommel. Very cool relic!
