Original Civil War Us Navy Ames Mfg. M1860 Cutlass~sword W/ Scabbard:
Original and nice circa 1862 U.S. Navy M1860 Cutlass and Scabbard. This is a nice absolutely attic un-touched example of one of these swords. There were 25,000 of these swords manufactured during the Civil War by the AMES Sword Co. of Chicopee, Mass. The U.S. Navy's M1860 Cutlass was no doubt the most famous U.S. Navy Cutlass ever produced and used in service for over 80 years. This sword has a very nice handle, excellent guard, and its 1862 dated and inspected blade measures its full 26 inches in length. The AMES factory markings on the reverse of the ricasso were always stamped very light on these and cannot be seen on this blade anymore.The blade is mostly bright, nick free, and appears to have never been sharpened.The very rare leather scabbard which is almost always missing or in terrible condition is present with the cutlass. The scabbard is all intact and one of the better original scabbards you will find. Overall a very nice attractive Civil War USN issue M1860 cutlass.Absolutely 100% lifetime guaranteed to be an original. Free USPS Priority Shipping.
