Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tougher to find pattern of pre-Civil War sword. This is the desirable model 1833 pattern Dragoon saber. This sword was made by the famous Ames Company of Springfield, Mass and it is so engraved at the base of the blade. When you look very closely, you can still read the maker marking as well as the production date of 1837. The blade is full-length with a nice untouched gray patina all over. On the back side of the blade it has the "UNITED STATES" in script lettering engraved into the metal and that can still be seen. The entire brass handguard and, pommel and backstrap are present and you can see that they saw service. You can still see the ordnance inspector stamp on the quillion of the handguard as well as the "W.S." inspector initials. On the inside it has the "HKC" inspector marking from Henry K. Charter who approved it for military service. The original handle is present with the wooden core remaining. The leather and spring style brass wire wrap are both missing in action and it has had a twisted brass wire added to make it display better. This is a fine looking original Ames Dragoon pattern cavalry saber for the price.
