This is a good-looking original Civil War dated cavalry saber. This is the classic model 1860 that was carried by the Union cavalryman during the Civil War and is the style most people associate with the war between the states. The sword has a full-length blade with a clear production date of 1864 stamped at the base. You can also see the "US” mark marking and the inspector initials of "G.W.S.”. These are the initials of George W. Sherman, that inspected the sword brass for the U.S. Government.The back of the blade has the desirable arch style maker’s mark of the Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts. Ames was the foremost maker of Civil War swords and sabers for the Union government. Along the edge of the sword it has the shallow nicks where it was actually used somewhere along the line. The guard and pommel cap have a great color and look to the brass. On the top of the pommel cap you can see the inspector initials of "J.H.”. The original leather is present on the handle. The wire wrap on the handle is original to the sword and displays quite well. It is accompanied by the original metal scabbard. The scabbard has the rings, mounts, drag and throat intact. This is a nice looking authentic 1864 dated Ames cavalry saber and scabbard.
