Original Civil War Mounted Artillery Saber from the Ames Company
Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War mounted artillery saber and scabbard. These would have been worn by an enlisted man in the artillery. This one has a full-length blade with none the maker marks still visible at the base. It would have originally had the maker's marking of the Chicopee, Massachusetts firm of the Ames Manufacturing Company on the base of the back of the blade. They were often very lightly stamped like this one. Ames was the premiere maker of these artillery sabers during the Civil War. The front of the blade has the " US" mark as well as traces of the the inspector initials of "A.D.K.". This is the initials of the man who inspected swords for the U.S. Government, A.D. King. You can see most the stamped production date with the last digit being partially visible. You can see the curve of the top of the digit so we know that it would have been 1862 or 1863. The original guard and pommel cap are present and have a nice color to the brass. On the handle it has the original leather grip and double twisted brass wire and it displays well as you can see. The sword is accompanied by a nice original metal scabbard with both mounts intact as well as the throat at the top. This is a fine looking Civil War artillery saber with scabbard that doesn't costa fortune.
