This is an original classic Civil War model 1860 cavalry saber with a very scarce manufacture date. This is the pattern so often carried by soldiers of the Civil War. This one has the original blade with a nice gray tone all over. The sword blade has the straight line maker’s mark of the Ames Manufacturing Company in Chicopee, Massachusetts at the base. On the front of the blade it has the scarce production date of 1860. It also has the "US" marking as well as the "JT" inspector initials. These are the initials of John Taylor who approved the sword for the Government use. In Thillmann’s sword book he states that there were only 1,200 delivered to the government in 1860 with 500 of those being delivered to the state of Virginia. The brass guard and pommel cap have a wonderful dark copper tone to the brass. The original grip and double twist brass wire are intact and have a very pleasing look all over. The sword is accompanied by the original complete scabbard that has both of the mounts, rings and the throat as well. The scabbard has is dent free and displays well as you can see in the pictures. This is a very attractive Civil War cavalry saber in scabbard with a clear and desirable pre-Civil War production date.
