AMES M1840 "OLD WRISTBREAKER" CAVALRY SWORD AND SCABBARD 1849
Original Civil War Ames M1840 "Old Wristbreaker" Cavalry Sword and Scabbard with desirable Pre Civil War Production date. Has a beautiful overall even dark patina. The original leather wrap is intact but the wire is MIA (Can be replaced for $25.00 if so desired). The pommel is undisturbed and has Military Inspector Initials "WD" and "JWR". The blade is full length with a nice point and very minimal nicks but has been sharpened. Has the Ames Maker Mark on one side of the blade and "US", Military Spector Initials "WD" on the reverse. A great example that will add to any Cavalry Collection! Please see all photos and call or write for more information.
