Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautifully made high grade officers sword manufactured before the Civil War. This is the style of sword that has the Knights head style pommel cap at the top of the sword, which is how they get their nickname of a "Knight's Head" militia sword. The handle of the sword is constructed of the beautifully designed silver grip. The cross guard of the sword is heavily gilded brass. In the center of the langet it has the mottled pattern background. The blade is full-length at 30-1/2 inches and you can still see the majority of the original etching on each side. On each side of the blade it has the beautiful Union style droop wing Eagle with the one on the back side having the banner and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" motto in the banner. The blade has a very pleasing look as you can see in the images but still displays quite beautifully. The sword is accompanied by the original, all brass gold gilded scabbard. The scabbard has the profuse engraving on the front side, including floral and geometric patterns and between the mounts it has the New York style droop wing Eagle design. The design shows the eagle perched on a Globe. On the reverse of the scabbard it has the scroll style maker's Mark of the Springfield, Massachusetts firm of Nathan P. Ames. The scabbard has all three of the original rings attached to the mounts as well as the stud at the top. It also has the original drag and throat intact. This si a very pleasing silver handled New York militia officer's sword and scabbard by Ames.
