I love the styling of this pattern of sword! This is the U.S. Model 1841 naval cutlass. They look like a gladiator sword with a wide hand guard. It has a full-length blade with a nice gray tone gray color. As you see, it has a wonderful appearance. The base of the back of the blade has the small "US" marking still present. You can still see a portion of the N.P. Ames mark on the front side of the blade with the "SPRINGFIELD" production location. Ames made these swords from 1841 until 1846 and they only made 6,600 of them according to the Hickox book on Ames swords. The guard and pommel has a wonderful attic golden patina all over with the fish scale design handle. They use this design to make the handle easier to hold onto during combat. The pommel cap has the eagle motif on each side. Back in 2011, I used this sword as an illustration of the Ames Model 1841 naval cutlass while we were filming Antiques Roadshow in San Diego. We filmed a segment on board of the USS Midway about the cutlasses through the years. Here is a link to the full episode and the segment featuring this sword is about half way through. Fast forward to see just the segment or just enjoy the rest of the show. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/watch/episode/1505-san-diego-hour-2/?page=1 This is a great looking weapon that definitely turn heads when it is in you relic room.
