Click on an image to enlarge
This is cool excavated original Civil War era short pattern artillery sword. These were patterned after the Roman gladiator swords with the fierce look like you see in the movies. The sword is 23-1/2 inches in overall length. The blade is full-length with the pitting from the years in the ground. At one time the blade would have had the maker's mark of the Ames Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Massachusetts on the back of the blade. It would have had the large straight line stamping with the eagle that is from their earlier production years when they were in Springfield. These were made by Ames from 1832 until 1862. The front of the blade would have had the "U S" stamp with the production date. The underside of the hand guard has inspector initials of "H.K.C" of Henry Knox Craig who inspected swords from 1835 until 1811. This lets us know that it was early enough to have been in action at any battle of the War. The handle is made of cast brass and has the fish scale design with the droop wing eagle at the top of the pommel. This is a Very cool relic!
