Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice original musician's pattern sword from the Civil War. These swords have the straight blade with the single branch on the hand guard. On the base of the front of the blade is the date of "1862" as well as the "US" mark and the inspector initials of "ADK". These stand for A.D. King. There was no other reason one of these swords would have been made in 1862 except to go to the Civil War. The inspector initials of "A.H.C." also shows up on the bow portion of the guard. The "A.H.C." stands for the U.S. Government inspector, A.H. Clark, who approved the sword for military use. On the back of the blade is the maker's mark of the famous "AMES MFG. CO. CHICOPEE, MASS". Ames was the premiere maker of edged weapons for the Union army during the Civil War. The blade has a fine looking gray color all over. The guard, grip and pommel cap are present with an attractive golden tone to the brass. This is your chance at a good looking Civil War era musician's sword with a Civil War production date for about what a U.S. buckle runs these days.
