RARE, American Civil War Era Model 1850 Foot Officer’s Sword With Etched Blade & RARE To Find Scabbard. Sn 14894:24 - 14894:24
The design of American Infantry swords of the Civil war era were influenced by French designs (see page 211 of World Swords by Withers). This sword was probably manufactured in either France or Germany and imported into North America for use by Union Foot Officer’s. This is a very good, original example of the Model 1850 sword complete with its rare to find original scabbard. It has 31 ½” elegantly curved blade with double fullers on both sides and it is 37 ½” overall. The ricasso is inlaid with its original brass ordnance proof roundel & it is fitted with original leather hilt washer. The cutting edge of the blade has no nicks or damage. The blade is etched on both sides with foliate decoration. The blade has staining consistent with age and would benefit from professional cleaning which would bring out the full detail of the decoration. The sword does not have any visible manufacturer, date, or inspection marks. It has the correct ornate foliate pierced brass guard with knuckle bar & rounded finial. It has a brass stepped pommel cap, the back of which is decorated with a hand tooled stylised Union Stars & Stripes motif above a foliate banner. Its fish skin bound grip is undamaged and has its original brass wire binding which is intact and tight. The sword is complete with its original rare to find black leather scabbard with brass mounts and 2 original hanging rings. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact but the surface of the leather has small areas of surface wear to be expected. The price for this rare American Civil war collector’s piece includes UK delivery. Sn 14894:24

The ricasso is marked on one side by the manufacturer ‘Made By Ames Mfg Co’ (upon the secession of the South, the Union lost access to their southern arsenals. Therefore, independent arms manufacturers were crucial to the success of the Union army. Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts was one of the Union’s most important manufacturers of side arms, swords, and light artillery, and the third largest producer of heavy ordnance). The reverse is dated ‘1864’ together with ‘U.S’ Union Army mark and what appears to be ‘L.H.K’ (most likely a factory inspector’s mark). It has the correct brass hilt without Kidney shaped counter-guard and has a brass knuckle bar & ribbed brass grip. The knuckle bar is stamped with factory inspector’s mark ‘G.W.E’. The sword is complete with its black leather scabbard with brass mounts and hanging bar. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact but the surface of the leather has light cracks and the brass fittings some minor denting, all consistent with age and use.
