Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice original musician's pattern sword from the Civil War. On the base of the front of the blade is the date of "1864" as well as the "US" mark and the inspector initials of "J..". These are the initials of Joseph Hannis who approved the sword for military use by the Ordnance Department. There was no other reason one of these swords would have been made in 1864 except to go straight to the Civil War. On the back of the blade is the scroll style maker's mark of the famous "AMES MFG. CO. CHICOPEE, MASS". Ames was the premiere maker of edged weapons for the Union army during the Civil War. The blade has a good looking untouched attic color all over. The guard, grip and pommel cap are present with an attractive deep dark tone to the brass. The sword is accompanied by the majority of the original brass and leather scabbard. The scabbard has the original throat intact but the drag has been long gone. You can tell by the patina on the blade that the drag has been gone for eons. This is your chance at a good looking Civil War musician's sword in scabbard with a Civil War production date.
