This fine example features a polished double edged steel blade with partial fuller in center on each side and 16-1/2" etched panels on both sides. The right side is decorated with an American Eagle, "U.S." in a wreath, crossed cannons, and American flags. The opposite side is decorated en suite and marked "N.P. Ames/Cutler/Springfield". Gilt brass hilt with boat guard, the top with a pierced heart. The knucklebow on both sides is decorated with a series of balls and the olive shaped pommel features double roped borders in the center and engraved feathers on the lower section. The capstan is decorated with stars. Silver wire wrapped grip. Complete with original gilt brass scabbard engraved with foliate motifs and an eagle. Back of scabbard has an applied scroll at the top which reads "N.P. AMES/CUTLER/SPRINGFIELD/MASS." CONDITION: Very good. Blade retains about 98% original polish with a couple scattered spots of dried oil. Hilt retains approximately 90-95% original gilt finish with some minor thinning on sides of guard and edges. Scabbard is excellent, showing some thinning and wear to gilt finish. A fine example of a scarce sword. DMG
