AMES M1860 CAVALRY SWORD AND SCABBARD WITH 1859 DATE
Original Civil War Ames M1860 Cavalry Sword and Scabbard with very desirable pre war 1859 date. The handle has a deep brass aged patina and most of the original leather wrap and wire. Has some inspector initials on the pommel that I cant quite make out from patina. The blade is full length with a perfect point. Has very minimal flea bite nicks more felt than seen. Has the 1859 date and JH inspector initials on one side of the blade. The Ames Maker Mark has completely worn away from service on the reverse. Most of these examples were lightly stamped. The original scabbard has a smooth dark patina. Has the original throat and both mounting rings intact. A great example of a rare Ames sword.
