Ames 1840 NCO and Scabbard

A superb condition Ames 1840 NCO sword variant with scabbard in spectacular condition. The sword does not have a reverse kidney guard, which is a common adaptation, but this one was clearly done in the factory, with the hilt having no sign whatsoever that there was a reverse guard. The brass is smooth with no signs of it being removed. The sword has the Ames scroll on one side of the ricasso, but on the reverse of the ricasso there are no marks whatsoever, including date or inspectors’ marks. The guard is also without stamps, as is the scabbard, so it is clear that this was made to order as it is. The blade is in full polish. The scabbard is a beauty, and the sword has a red cloth washer. Dimensions: The blade is 32.25 inches long. The sword in its scabbard is 41 inches long overall. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

 

 

Condition:

Excellent overall. There are a couple of minor scuff to the leather of the scabbard, but it, like the blade is in superb condition. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
