1850 United States Government Regulation Model Staff and Field Officer's Sword

Description

This Model 1850 Staff and Field Officer’s Sword was made by one of the highest quality sword manufacturers of the time, Ames Manufacturing Company. The gold gilded hilt with its regulation grip retained approximately 90% of its original finish. Etched in white is “Ames MFG Company Chicopee Mass.” as well as “US” along with military motifs of an American eagle. Even the blade retains most of its rare frosted finish. The regulation scabbard is the early browned steel pattern with gold gilded clover-based mounts that are also marked with the company name. Ames produced some of these swords under contract for the government, but also produced them privately for personal use by officers. This is an incredibly high-quality piece in excellent condition.
