Click on an image to enlarge
This is a classic original Civil War naval officer's sword. Officially known as the U.S. model 1852 naval officer's sword, this is the style that was worn by naval officers during the Civil War. The blade is full length and is etched on each side with patriotic and other designs. The etching on the back of the blade has anchor as well as the flags and spears with "USN" on the banner. On the base of the blade it has the manufacturer marking of the Chicopee, Massachusetts maker marking of the famous Ames firm. Ames was the foremost American maker of quality edged weapons for the union during the Civil War. The guard and pommel cap have always stood apart from the normal Civil War officer's sword. It has the bold "USN" in the basket of the guard and the quillion is made like a serpent's head. At the very top of the pommel cap it has the droop wing style naval eagle. If you notice that all of the brass parts have a beautiful patina with a fine amount of the original gold gilding from the factory. This one has a fine amount of the original sharkskin grip present on the handle with a pleasing look all over. It also has the original double twist wire intact on the handle as well. The sword is accompanied by the original scabbard that is made brass and leather. The mounts are the correct naval style with the twisted rope designs leading to the rings. The drag is present and it has the sea serpent design as well. The back of the top mount has the correct and matching Ames Manufacturing maker marking as you see in the images. This is an attractive looking original Civil War naval officer's sword and scabbard by Ames.
