Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tougher to find pattern of pre-Civil War sword. This is the desirable model 1833 pattern Dragoon saber. This sword was made by the famous Ames Company of Springfield, Mass and it would have been engraved at the base of the blade but you can no longer read any of the maker marking. You can no longer see the production date either but we have the inspector initials still present. The blade is full-length with a nice untouched attic style patina all over. At the base of the blade we have the "JM" initials stamped. These are the initials of the inspector, Justin Murphy. The entire brass handguard and, pommel and backstrap are present and you can see that they saw service. You can still see the ordnance inspector stamp on the quillion of the handguard as well as the "H.K.C." inspector initials that stands for Henry K. Charter. The original handle is present with the wooden core remaining. The original leather is partially present and the Spring style wire wrapping is still present. This piece of history came from the museum like personal collection of Mathew Woodburn. This is a nice and affordable original Ames Dragoon pattern cavalry saber.
