US 1840 Musician’s Sword by Ames

An exceptionally nice and clean 1862 dated 1840 Musician’s sword with the Ames scroll on one side of the ricasso, and US over WG over 1862 on the other. The sword is in extremely nice condition, retaining most of its original polish. The scabbard is not as nice as is the sword, missing its drag and the leather inside the drag, and generally in lesser condition. Dimensions: 35 inches long overall, with the blade being 28 inches long. Processing and shipping in the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

The sword itself is excellent in all regards, with sharp, clear markings, and very nice condition with almost 100% original polish to the blade. The scabbard is missing its drag, and is in only good condition. The leather of the scabbard is also scuffed and scraped in several places with a bend to the leather just below the throat, and verdigris on the throat.Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
