Cadet Sword Saber Us Military Academy West Point School Institute

Model 1922 Closeup of the hilt bearing the Athenian helmet seal.

At some time after 1922, the West Point sword was modified to carry the seal of the Academy representing the Athenian helmet of Greek mythology, reflecting the adoption of this into the Academy's coat of arms, instead of the letters "MA" on its guard. The seal as adopted about the turn of the present century was designed with the classical helmet facing left. In 1922 it was pointed out that this was counter to the best heraldic usage, and the helmet was turned to face right. All swords bearing the crest that have been examined have had the helmet facing right. The earliest examples of these are well made with brass grips. The straight blade is double-edged with a wide central fuller on both sides running from the ricasso to within 8 inches of the point. It is etched on the obverse side of the blade "U.S.M.A." The hilt resembles that on the previous specimen except for the changes in the propor­tions of the elements, the use of white metal for the grips, and the use of the seal instead of the letters "MA" on the guard. The scabbard is exactly the same except that the body is chrome plated.
