Civil War Naval Cutlass Model 1860 was manufactured by the famous AMES Sword Company and is dated "1863" on the ricasso. The blade measures 25 7/8 inches in length and remains in "sea exposed" condition with stains and old surface pitting scars. The Ames marking on the blade is now faded, however the inspector's marking and date remain in addition to the Ames serial number that is still present on the front of the brass cup guard which is a bit dinged but does remain sturdy and tight in its condition. The leather wrapped hilt has survived in good, tight condition as well reflecting only some good honest wear to the leather.
The very healthy RARE and seldom encountered SCABBARD has survived in outstanding condition still wearing all of its brass tacks and frog stug. Overall measuring 32 inches in length. TO SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS PLEASE SCROLL DOWN. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items.
