Description

This swords consists of a brass butterfly guard, knuckle guard and a leather, gilt wire wrapped hilt. Most of the leather is now gone. The hilt is approximately 12cm long and a blade approximately 91cm long. The pommel cap has the inspection mark of "J.W.R." for James W. Riley. The curved blade is nicely toned but there is no pitting and would clean to near mint if desired. The ricasso is stamped "Ames Mfg. Co. Cabotville 1849" on the obverse, while the reverse features "US WD" with "WD" representing William Dickinson. The curved scabbard measures approximately 98cm in its entirety with a pair of heavy hanging loops.
