Civil War Model 1840 Ames Nco Sword   Desirable 1863 Date

Offered here is an excellent Civil War Model 1840 NCO sword made by Ames.  The obverse ricasso is stamped US over AHC (U.S. Government Inspector Archibald H. Ceiley) over the date 1863.  The Made by Ames Mfg Co, Chicopee, Mass. blade scroll, as is typical, is partially worn on the reverse ricasso.  Inspector Ceiley's AHC stamp also appears on the knuckle bow.  


The brass has a nice mellow patina and is completely tight to the blade.  No looseness or wobble in the guard or grip.  The blade is straight and smooth with splotchy age darkening.  There is no rust and just a small area of pitting at the blade tip.  It has no nicks and no evidence that it ever has been sharpened.  The leather scabbard was in such shambles that it is not being offered here.  It would only detract from this nice sword.


This piece will very nicely fill the bill for the collector who wants an Ames NCO sword with a killer date.  The 1863 Ames contract with the government was delivered in time that the first service of this sword could have been at Gettysburg.
