I love the styling of this pattern of sword! This is the U.S. Model 1841 naval cutlass. They look like a gladiator sword with a wide hand guard. It has a full-length blade with a nice dark gray color look all over. The base of the front of the blade you can no longer see the markings that this sword would have been made by the NP Ames company of Springfield, Massachusetts. Ames made these swords from 1841 until 1846 and they only made 6,600 of them according to the Hickox book on Ames swords. The guard and pommel has a wonderful dark brass patina all over with the fish scale design handle. The pommel cap has the eagle motif on each side. On the quillion of the sword guard it has the inspector initials on each side. One one side it has the "W.A.T." that stands for the inspector William A. Thornton. The other side has the "N.W." initials for Nathaniel Whiting. This is a great looking weapon that definitely turn heads when it is in you relic room.
